Dear Shirley, I am so sorry for your loss. Billy was a wonderful colleague. I fondly remember the time had with the two of you and other MIS faculty at a dinner arranged by Billy while attending the DSI conference in Orlando. What a great evening! Over the years we shared many interesting conversations. My deepest sympathies.
