  7. I am grateful I had the opportunity to meet Bill at the Georgia Public Service Commission. Just about a month ago, I had the pleasure of chatting with him during lunch. He was engaged in a passionate discussion with one of the Commissioners, and I could tell he truly was a man of conviction. We will miss him.

  8. Peggy, I am so sadden by the news that Bill has passed on. Just know my heart felt prayers are with you and Bill. May the love that surrounds you be a source of comfort at this time.

    Sincerely, Julius Hulsey

  9. Peggy: I was shocked and saddened to learn of Bill’s death. He was always (as you have been) so kind and gracious to me and I know that all of the PSC and intervenors over the years are grieving, as well.
    May God’s peace, beyond all of our understanding, keep your heart and mind during this difficult time.

  10. When I started working with the PSC some 8 years ago, the first person to make me feel welcome was Bill. No matter how long a hearing went, Bill always had a joke and a funny story for me at the end. He could always make me smile, no matter how badly my hearing may have gone. Bill was a fine man, and he will be dearly missed by Peggy, his family and all of us who were privileged to know him. But we will see him again – this I know.

  11. Peggy,

    I am so sorry to hear about Bill. Mom was just beside herself. She worried about you all for weeks/months. Our hearts really go out to you.

    Take care,


  12. Peggy and Family,

    On behalf of the Atmos family, we sincerely mourn your loss and will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

  13. I am deeply saddened by Bill’s passing. I have the faith to know that he is with God now and in a far better place, but all of us he left behind will miss him. I will miss our ‘NASCAR chats’ and his easy smile. He was a wonderful man, a kind and gentle person – the type of person the world needs more of and can not afford to lose. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
