I'll never forget the first time I met Bill! Denise and I had become best friends in the 7th grade, and I was spending the night at their house for the first time. Late at night as we were giggling and goofing off in Denise and Renee's room, we heard what sounded like someone snooping around outside. The noise got louder and more suspicious until it became obvious that someone was, indeed, prowling around out there because they pounded loudly on the bedroom window! We all let out a shriek worthy of a horror movie, only to hear him outside laughing louder than we had screamed! Rest in peace, Bill.
