I have wonderful memories of Bill from the time where we worked together at the Desmond Campus. He was such a kind, thoughtful man. We had many wonderful and enlightening conversations. I am so sorry to learn of his passing.

I worked with William at the Desmond Campus of Mount Saint Mary College. I remember well our enjoyable and interesting discussions in classes, especially on matters of our shared enthusiasm for mysticism and spirituality. He will be missed-Caring thoughts to the family.

From: Marty Manson - He made a major impact on my life, which will not diminish. It is said, in the tradition of my birth, that
"the good that people do lives on after them." The respectful friendship, his listening ability with followup questions that
allowed me to do deeper probing, the intellectual, cosmic, and spiritual discussions with him, the meals, the laughter, the
classes I took with him, the poetry, the story of Job, team teaching, The Prophet, with him, and the somewhat guilty, furtive
ice cream sodas and Sunday's that we had at the Beacon Diner. I have been singing the song, "We shall meet but we shall miss him there will be one empty chair..."

The Desmond Campus will miss Bill. His friendless and knowledge will remain. Charlie Ford
