until you have shaken hands with the 200-300 people whose life they touched. Let me back up a bit. Bill’s wake was held at the church where he worked and had attended for most of his life. He had graduated from the seminary but was never ordained as a priest. We heard how he had counseled, mentored, supported, cajoled and loved each person in whatever way was needed. We also heard more times than I can count that Bill had told them about his family and how proud he was of each of us. It’s been a difficult week but very inspiring.
