  1. I worked at the SoundScriber Sales Office in Hamden so many years ago when your father was a sales representative there. I saw your father at the New Haven court many years later when I was there on jury duty. He was seated in the audience section hearing the case and I knew I recognized him, but could not place where or remember his name at that time. So sorry to hear of your loss via this posting.

  2. My thoughts are with you. Bill was a wonderful friend during our days at the Yale Law Library. I think of him often. Martha Clark Branford, CT

  3. Our sincere sympathy during this difficult time. We will keep you in our thoughts & prayers. Red, Alberta & Kathleen Bowery
