The National Imperial Glass Collectors Society sincerely appreciates the work that both Bill and Alice did for the Society. Both shared a real love for the Society and contributed greatly to both Museum and Board activities. How fortunate we were to share their efforts. Their family can be proud of their contributions!

Debbie and Family, Sorry to hear about your Dad. My parents bought insurance from him in the early 1960's. In those days, the insurance men visited their policy holders at their homes. He was so proud of you and loved you very much. Everytime he came by, he always talked about you Debbie. I also remember him doing different things around town as he was a civic minded person and loved Bellaire. Yours, Jerry Swift, BHS class of 1971.

When we were ready to open the Nat. Imperial Glass Museum in Bellaire, Bill & Alice were our first Docents. Bill recruited others for us from the retired senior group. He loved to give visitors tours and he was super good. They had great stories to relate to everyone. We all enjoyed having them volunteer. Bill was a very special person. He never met a stranger. At last he is with his beloved Alice. Till we meet again old friend. Joan & Joe Cimini
