I cannot tell you how overwhelmed I was to hear of W.P. passing away so suddenly. He has always been such a wonderful friend to me. I will never forget his kindness to me by letting me "run away" to the lake house to sit on the dock when life overwhelmed me. I will miss him terribly as all of us will at work. He was a fixture every week and it will not be the same with him not coming in. I know you all are grieving right now and my heart is with you as I grieve with you. He was a wonderful man.
