The Rohrbeck family is so sad to hear of Bill's passing. How lucky you all have been to have had him in your lives for so many wonderful years.
I know Gerry was at the front of the line to welcome Bill home. if we listen closely, we can hear them harmonizing together already.
RIP in Peace, Bill. You will be missed by all who knew you.
