Hi Everyone:


It tears me up to have to post this but I was contacted by Laurie Gardner (Bill's sister) last night.  Bill passed away in August from a heart attack.  I am posting this, with her permission, so that all his friends here know what has ocurred.  I've also asked for a copy of the obituary and will post it, and any other information, when I get it.


Rest in peace Bill.  You were a wealth of knowledge and gave freely of that knowledge. Our conversations will be sorely missed.

That is really sad to hear, condolences to Bills family. I was starting to wonder because Bill hasnt posted in a while and he sent me a letter saying that he was having a bit of health issues, I was just about to write him and see whats going on. And then this sad news came in. RIP Bill and thanks for all the advice

The Bonner Family

Oh Lord, let us experience
The closeness of you as
We exalt in the glories
Of the sea;
Permit the upward spiral
Of our bubbles to form
A silver pathway leading to heaven;
Let us share in peace
The vibrant beauty of
This waterworld with all
Creatures dwelling within;
Give us the wisdom not
To destroy but to observe
And study the birthplace
Of man;
Bring us safely to shore, Oh Lord
That we may tell others of
The wondrous world below.

Raymond V. Morrow
