From the time in 1956 when our families moved together from Ohio to Miami Beach, Billy and I were extremely close friends. After medical school my wife, Sharon, also became a very close friend of Billy. And subsequently our three children came to adore their wonderful Uncle Billy. I am proudly saddened to depart from such a marvelously exemplary individual who was so important to me during most of my life.

Dear Linda, Harry, and Sara My deepest heartfelt condolences for your loss. I really liked and respected Bill. He was an educated man, and a kind soul. We are cousins on my maternal grandmother's side from Akron, Ohio. My grandmother's name was Jennie Levy and her sister was Sadie Fertel. I feel an emptiness and sadness in my heart because he was a fine man and human being and I'm going to miss him! May he RIP!
