Talk about the passing of a giant. Along with most every one else,I thought he was the number one piano retailer in the country. And one of the best to do business with.He will be missed.

I have met and chatted with Bill on several occasions and he was always gracious. As Vince mentioned, he was a giant in the industry. There are none other like him, IMHO.
