Dear Sandy and Family,
Bill was such an terrific Post Master, member of our community, lover of history and most of, loved people. He always had a ready smile and kind caring words. John and I enjoyed his company and we were honored to know him. May God bless you and keep you.

I always enjoyed Tuesdays at the library with Bill. Really missed him when he stopped coming in. Such a cheerful fellow, and full of Rhinebeck History.

My sincerest condolences to Bill's family. Having grown up on Old Post Rd., I remember his parents and 3 maiden aunts well. I admired how Bill kept the history of Rhinebeck alive and enjoyed reading his historical contributions on FB. He will be missed!
