Bill was my best buddy all through school. He was the smartest guy, hands down, that I ever ran across in my life. He was clever, ingenious and a mischief maker all in one package. He was the photographer for the Oracle our senior year and I tagged along as he went to various sponsors. Therefore, I appeared in lots of the ads for the Oracle. I will not forget my best bud any time soon.
