Bill Morem was a longtime friend, and he was someone who would always lend an ear. He was a master of words and sentiment. He loved his grandson adoringly and spoke about what a blessing it was to have a grandson.
Bill was without a doubt the best editor and writer The Tribune has ever had, and he will be missed dearly.
He indeed did have a way with words. Once, when moderating a political candidates meeting, he accused me of frothing at the mouth, which made me laugh, and I responded I was not rabid.
Such were the encounters of the many hats Bill wore throughout his journalistic career. It grieves me deeply to see such a fine person of a man leave us. God bless him, and may he rest in peace.
