My sister-in-law, Sandy Nussbaum, sent me an email this evening telling me of Bill's passing. I had not seen Bill, nor Judy nor Janie, for probably 50 or 60 years, but do remember very fond memories of my parents, Len and Lucille Nussbaum, stopping over with us kids in the car to your family home on Margaret St., or was it Gertrude St., or maybe if I recall correctly, it was both at different periods of time. Even though we live 1000 miles away in Denver, I send my thoughts and prayers to all of you on the passing of a great guy. I echo Sarah and Henry's comments about the beautifully-written obituary. I especially am moved by the end quote attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson. I am sure many a soul "breathed easier" because my cousin Billy walked this earth. Rest easy, Billy, you have made a difference in many peoples' lives; what more can anyone ask for? Jim Nussbaum, Denver, Colorado 303-885-0073.
