    Please accept my profound sympathy for the passing of Bill. He was a fine person, an important asset to the community and especially to Mitchell Schools. It was my honor to have worked with him during my tenure with the schools. The transportation system worked smoothly only because of loyal contractors and employees like Bill. He will certainly be missed. May God grant his loved ones the peace of knowing Bill was highly regarded by so many in our community.
