    To the Cahill Family,

    May your many good memories help you through your difficult times. As a fellow BNLer, I had the pleasure of golfing with Bill, and I will always remember our times sneaking on Middle Island at dawn to play nine holes before work and like two kids our last time when we got caught! We laughed like children! I will cherish our friendship and only be glad he is no longer suffering. RIP Bill
