    Bill died 10 years ago today. He was a brother in law but more like a brother. He was my best friend, fishing buddy, golf partner and business partner.

    I told my wife once that we would have to be married a hundred years to be able to sit across a table at lunchtime as many times as Bill and I did.

    Over this last weekend I had some extraordinary fishing luck. I kept running in to schools of large white Bass about 3 lbs each. I must have caught over three hundred pounds of fish in three days with a little over an hours effort every day.

    Bill had this infectious giggle that slipped out of him when he was nervous or having fun.

    I kept hearing his giggle and thinking what a blast he would have down at the lake.

    I bought the place right after he died.

    I told my wife that I wanted a lake house all my life and always planned on getting one. And, apparently we die.

    Happy Birthday Bill I still miss you every day.

    I just wanted to tell someone that.

    I'm sure you miss your "brother." We bought a place at the beach after my husbands dad died four years ago (this Christmas Eve). My husband never would have done that before.

    Enjoy your days at the lake and thinking of your great buddy.

    Thanks guys.

    He really was a great guy. We used to tournament fish together. His son was 12 going on his 13 year of age. Bill laughed at our last tournament and said "this is your last one Karl. From now on it me and Adam" (his son).

    He died a few months later. Adam is my number one fishing buddies these days and I spend as much time with him as he allows.
