  1. Bill and I grew up together. He lived about a block away. We attended University Heights Elementary School, along with our neighbors and the children from the Baptist Children’s Home that was at NW 63rd and Penn at that time. We had wonderful teachers and formed a very tight-knit community from the surrounding area. Bill was always very artistic. He and I were the only two students of our class to take violin lessons one day a week from a visiting teacher. That only lasted for a year and was not a lot of fun for that teacher, I’m thinking, judging from my memory of the terrible noises we made. Bill will be missed by all who knew him.
