Loss of a Great Friend and a Loss of Innocence

Bill and I were high school friends. We often would go out to lunch to Scotty’s Hamburgers in his first car, a ‘54 Ford that consumed roughly equal amounts of oil and gasoline. Bill was strong, assertive, and robust with a core that featured a clever wit, a skill in acting, and loyalty to friends and family. He had little time for pretense and liked people for what they are
I remember visiting his home where we’d enjoy the company of his artistic and clever mom. I also enjoyed getting to know his wife and visiting the newlyweds at their apartment near Fort Holibird.
I think of Bill often and wonder what we’d be sharing today. I have told his story to many of my friends; a story of a man who I am so proud to have known.

Remembering a high school best friend

I think of Bill often. He was such a vibrant character and always the extrovert. He would often visit my house unannounced, chat with my parents, dance to our new stereo and always had a broad smile. I have also visited the wall and prayed for Bill their many times. The last time I saw him he had just purchased a new VW and had a new baby daughter. I have missed him throughout my life and I am so fortunate to have known him and to have shared so many wonderful times with him. I served in the Army as well during that awful war but was lucky to have a state side assignment. We lost too many young men and women like Bill and it is now a regrettable part of our history.
