    JJ,
    My god. I can't believe it. So sudden. Unexpected is too light of a word.
    Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
    There is no replacing Bill.
    Thanks for passing along the difficult news, JJ.

    JJ,[p]I can't believe that I'm reading this and tears fill my eyes as I attempt to type a response. Bill was a great friend and a truly special person.

Although we will all continue forward, this forum will never be the same. I will always remember Bill and his hard work and dedication.[p]K~G

  • JJ,
    My heart goes out to you, Brenda and the whole Miller family. I sit here with tears in my eyes knowing how hard it is going to be to continue on without him. I lost my own Mother late Monday evening, after a long illness. It was not unexpected, but even so, it is hard to think about it. Now, we find Bill (our truly beloved webmaster) has gone on to meet the Lord. I fervently pray that he knew the Lord as his personal Savior. Carolyn & I will keep the Miller family in our prayers.[p]May our Lord Jesus keep the whole family under His watchful wing. God bless you Brenda and give you strength through this time of sorrow.[p]Dave

    JJ,[p]Oh my! Ohh, I am finding it hard to type at this point. I have been at my moms home for the past 3 days as she (81) is having some major surgery - that was hard and I have been an emotional wreck while there. Now I log on this AM and read this. I am very sad about this - only meeting Bill and Brenda last Oct it was as if I had known them for years. [p]My deepest condolences to you Brenda. [p]Tim Moore

  • JJ,
    I also am very upset to hear the news of Bill's passing. I never met him personally but I have talked to him on the phone and exchanged emails several times. I helped him when he set up the BGE Forum and later on he helped me several times. He really knew a lot about the scripts that run these forums. He will be missed.[p]Ray Basso

  • I just received this tragic news, all BBQ'ers will miss him. My heartfelt sympathies to Brenda and the family.

    I don't know what to say. I have only met with Bill a couple of times, and emailed with him quite a bit, but I feel like I have just lost a life-long friend. It is because I know that I have. Bill, you will be missed more than I know how to express. Brenda, I am so sorry for your loss.[p]Brant

    I just logged onto the forum and saw the many posts. There is really nothing that I can say except to extend my condolences to Bill's family. While many of us will surely miss his help and true desire to assist, I know they will miss him even more. God bless.

  • JJ, I've never formally met Bill,, but I've been in the Atlanta store a few times so I may have seen him in there with the rest of the smiling friendly faces. But in our present world, the good ones will be missed, even by those who've never met them..

  • I can't believe it. I am so sorry. Although we never met, we did exchange a few e-mails. What a wonderful man. My prayers are with him and his family.
