Ken and I stopped in Hartford last fall to say "Hello" to Bill who we had met via the Internet - we spent a happy few hours with him - talking of all things "folky" on both sides of the Atlantic.
We listened to some music with him - drank a coffee and really enjoyed his company. He shared with us some of his favourite New England folk music - and we have come to share those likes.
It was therefore with great sadness we read this posting. Our thoughts are with his family - if anyone reading this goes to a memorial service - please "sing him out".
A quiet gentleman, a true gentleman, and one who will be missed.
Bill - may you always run before the wind - safe harbour
Ken and Jan Lardner (England)
