    I was afarid of that Robert. Jim had heard on another Missouri site but we were never able to confirm anything.
    Very sad news. Bill was a long time BOC member and had come to the Mo. gatherings and fished with us many times. He was one of the best and will be missed. He had been struggling with cancer since late 05 and it came back this year. I know he was able to travel all over the country this year to florida off shore fishing and many other areas.

    This is the last message I got from Bill on 5-18-08
    Hi Troy, My wife & I are in the Washington DC area right now. I signed up for an experimental cancer treatment at the National Institute of Health here. Since it's a Federal agency, they're going to pay the freight to fly me out here every two weeks for 4 months for special vaccinations. Don't know if it'll work, but i'm trying everything i can find.

    So my wife decided to quit her job & lay off work for a year. We brought the camper & we're staying out East for 4 weeks, combining vacation with medical. Next week i have a guide hired for a day's fishing on the coast. We'll spend a couple days on the beach there. Today we went to the aquarium at Baltimore. Last Friday a tour of DC. Going to Jefferson's home at Monticello next week. We may go south in Virginia to visit Williamsburg & see the horse country. Planning to stop at a glass blowing factory in West Virginia & the Air Force museum in Ohio on way home. Might get to see a sprint car race in Ohio.
    I'm still feeling good, so I don't know when we'll be home, for sure.
    Bill

    RIP Bill (Crawdad) Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family.

    Thoughts and prayers are sent from KS. Im glad that he got a chance to get out before it got too bad. I lost my Dad to cancer 2 years ago and cant count how many I have known to get it since. It is definatley an epidemic. Tell the people you care about that you love them. You never know, you might not get the chance to do it later.
