“My deepest sympathies to the Pitt & Hadley familes. Bill & Wilma were second parents to all the kids on the track and cross country teams as we were growing up, running along the side lines cheering for us. They continued to cheer just as joyfully for our successes as we became adults. There were always big smiles and hugs whenever we saw each other to this day. He will truly be missed. ”
