Mr. Williams,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country when you served with the USN during WW II and for being a member of the Greatest Generation. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

We are sorry to hear of Mr. Williams passing. What a kind and wonderful man he was. I think of all the great gatherings at the Bay State Road homestead and all the love and generosity both John and Bernie had for all your family as well as all who were blessed to call them friends.
I will remember his wit, his wry smile, and his never ending teasing directed at everyone he loved. He will be missed.
