    Those of us who knew Bill Gwatney mourn his death and pray for his family. Bill had many virtues. One was that he was very smart, and another was that he was sometimes so direct in his language and his way of relating to others that some found it startling. Most of us found his candor extremely refreshing. We will miss him.
