Fred and Andy, It was with a heavy heart that I read of the passing of your father. I always enjoyed your father's quick whit and dry sense of humor. Peace to you both.

I met Bill in 1970 when my husband Ron Willis became part of the Theatre faculty. We became good friends with him and enjoyed his company socially for many years. His sense of humor was legend. I offer my sincere condolences to all the members of the Conboy family, and I am offering prayers for Bill and for all of you. Marie
