“My condolences to Bill's family. I was Bill's manager when Metz Baking was bought by Colonial, then Sara Lee. Bill wasn't just incredibly dependable, he was a super guy and someone I always trusted to do things right. He was actually the 1st person in the company I told when an opportunity came up and I was thinking about leaving and his advice helped convince me to go for it. ”
