It is with sadness that I inform everyone that our beloved jammer, Bill Bullard, passed away peacefully in the arms of his love, Danu and with his best friend and music partner, Brent, beside him.  Over the two evenings
prior to his death early on the morning of Mar. 8, Susan and I , Danu and her son , Joe, Brent, Bill's sister and brother and other friends and family shared songs and stories of Bill.  As Bill's brother, Marty, said at the bedside of Bill, "he is the best person I've ever known."
