I never met Bill. I learned about him from youtube's Campervan Kevin a few months back when Kevin asked if we might send Bill a card. I wish I could have met Bill. He was a wonderful man and a treasured mentor of Kevin's. My condolences to Bill's family and friends. I'll sign off one last time the same way I've been signing all of Bill's cards the past few months. Love and Prayers, Annie in Iowa
