It is my sad duty, once again, to announce the passing of my good friend, and friend of the chetboard, Bill "Rip" Wilson who died in his sleep during the weekend. At this time, I do not know any of the details.

Paul, Rip and I had some good times together also. We even did a little picking together. He was a lot of fun. I am sorry to hear about his passing, and also to you too because I know you and him were good friends.

I truly hate to hear it, Paul. He was a character...they don't make them like Bill anymore.

I'm so sorry to hear about Rip. I remember meeting him back in 2006 when I attended CAAS for the first time. I sure have missed his posts over the last couple of years. I enjoyed his personality both in person as well as on the Chetboard. I send my condolences to you and Rip's family and friends. RIP Rip.

Paul: Very sorry to hear about Bills passing. I enjoyed talking to him on many occassions at C.A.A.S. and shared some tales and experiences of past years.

I'm saddened to hear of Rip's passing. Rip had a terrific sense of humor, and was a great contributor to the ChetBoard.

R.I.P. Bill...
