For those who may have missed it, on January 30, 2014 there was a Memorial held for Bill Lawrence during the Tucson Show.

Bob Jones was the MC/Host for the event and Brian Kosnar graciously volunteered to film the event.

I've posted the event on YouTube for anyone to see: http://youtu.be/fZpIkwr9wdU

That photo of Bill was one I took, I just caught him with that sweet smile in Tucson. Thanks for the post Bryan.

Gail,

I think that's going to be the one photo of Bill that most people will always remember. It's a wonderful photograph of him and, speaking on behalf of the mineral community, thank you for being there and giving this to us all.

-B

For those, like me, who did not know Bill, I found this tribute by Rock Currier

http://www.mindat.org/forum.php?read,6,308154,308324

Having read up about him and after viewing the video posted by Brian, I wish I had the time to get to know him. Strength to his wife, family and friends.
