    R.I.P. Bill, you were a true gentleman. It was a privilege and an honour
    to have known you, and to have enjoyed your company on numerous occasions at the Decatur Golf Club, when we lived in the USA. Our sincere condolences to your family for their loss. Our thoughts from across “The Pond” are with all your family and friends at this sad time.
