Rest In Peace Bill. Bill and Catherine were so kind to me and so important to our community.

Bill and I met and talked so many times when I was the Athletic Booster President at Foothill. I was always met with respect for my viewpoint on mutual issues, and he was always quick with a smile and handshake.

I will miss those moments when we would bump into each other around town, and our conversations about the kids in town.

May God be with his family as they grieve his passing, and I pray they will be comforted by the many wonderful memories he gave them. God bless.

It was a pleasure working with someone like Dr James. He treated all PTA/PFC Presidents in the District with kindness, appreciation and especially with an Open Ear. Always wanting to make the District a better place. He along with Juanita, and Jerri Long made the District Schools a great place to volunteer in the 1990's. Thank you Dr James and my condolences to your family.
