  6. About 30 years of friendship and shared good times. Now Bill’s gone and it won’t be the same when we next meet Catherine. But we’ll remember him with fondness: his warm spirit, dry humour and occasional unbiased and informed financial advice.We’ll drink to the memory of Bill down the track a bit.
