I've known Katrina and Bill for about 18 years. We met when Pets Alive was just forming and we were helping prepare for the first animal adoption event downtown. We've been in touch ever since. Bill was such a kind and friendly man. I've enjoyed many visits with him and Katrina over the years. Wishing comfort and peace to Katrina and all the family. Karen Smith (friend)
