I am so sorry to read of Bill's passing. He was a dear friend to my late Uncle, who lived near to his home in Kew Gardens. I enjoyed Bill's music as well, he'll be missed by many. Rest in Peace, Bill.

I am sorry for your loss. I don't know the family personally but I know how it feels to lose a loved one. Prayer and supplication will help you to cope with your loss. God also provides comfort from the scriptures and from people who care. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) May your family experience peace and know that your loved one is in the best hands possible. (Revelation 21:4).
For more encouraging reading

I was 19 when I met Bill, and I had the pleasure of making lots of music with him over the years. It's great that I can still hear his voice, as I'm listening to his song The Outsider on YouTube as I write this. I'm sorry I can not be there with you in NY to say farewell, but please know that his spirit will continue to be remembered fondly!
