I can't believe that anyone would think that Bill was a "slacker." He did what he loved and his son and I loved him enough to let him do it. If truth be told, I encouraged Bill to go because I knew he would never be happy living "in a nest." We loved him dearly and his loss cuts deep.
If anyone would like to see some of his art work check out Westerly's web page at http://www.kayakbillprints.com
