To the Gruhn Family: My deepest condolences for the passing of my longtime friend. Bill was one of the kindest and most intelligent people I knew, and would always offer me his help and mentor-ship since we worked together at Digital Equipment Corp. together. Few of the former employees remained close friends afterwards as Bill and I did. He was a second father to me. I will truly miss him greatly All my love and prayers to you all in this time of his passing. Bill Morris

Dear Gruhn Family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. Bill was a true gentleman and a friend to many. I know my mom and dad thought highly of your family and I am happy that your family is living in the Cape home that meant so very much to all of us. Beautiful memories were made there. Please know my sympathies are with you all. Andrea Coulter Aronne

Oh Ellen, I am so sorry for your loss. Having just gone through this, I lost my Dave, (2/3/19), I feel your pain. My thoughts are with you and your family.
