Thanks for the Facebook comments.

I'll be shifting to the VA facility later this AM.

The cancer is terminal. My right lung has been destroyed and
the left lung is infected with cancer and is inoperable.

You may share this information as you wish.

Although I don't know him personally I have always enjoyed his photography and enthusiasm for it. I wish him and his family the best.

Bill is one photographer that didn't need to watermark his images. You knew who took the photo. His style was that strong and that unique.

Maybe he can talk the nurses to get him and his pen out to compose some more magic.

Good luck Bill. Were with you, thoughts and prayers,
