It’s hard to believe you’re no longer with us, Bill Grabe Senior. I am honored to have known you and had the opportunity to learn from you. You’ve been one of the biggest influences in my Real Estate career and I cherish all the time and knowledge you shared with me in your time here. You would always find a way to lighten the mood with a joke, a tease, or your smile! You enjoyed giving me a hard time just to make me laugh. My favorite thing about you was your fun-loving spirit, it was so contagious that just a short time spent with you would put anybody in a better, happier mood. The quote “Surround yourself with people that reflect who you want to be and how you want to feel, energies are contagious”, must have been written for you, Bill. You will always be remembered for how you made people feel.
