This is one of my favorite memories of Uncle Bill. We were visiting him with our dog Jessie in Dec 2014. He was looking after Susan’s cat, and while Rainer was taking this photo, Jessie found the cat in the bedroom. Uncle Bill was unperturbed by the ensuing entanglement, assured that the cat would win out (it did). Thanks, Uncle Bill, for your love of life and perseverance. You were a role model for a life well-lived.
