Thanks to all of you for your kind words.  The greatest thing to help me
feel better is just for you to continue to use Cinelerra in whatever form
you can as Bill always just wanted to make sure it lives on in the NLE
world.  Phyllis

> The gap he leaves behind is huge and filling it will be hard.
> Thanks for everything dear Bill. It was a great honor and pleasure to

> I express my condolences to Phyllis, his family and friends.
