: Quote from http://bill.choisser.com/ :
: "Bill died in his sleep on May 17, 2016, at age 69, following a 10 year battle with Polymyositis, a chronic muscle disease that attacks the organs."
: I have seen that the domain has expired on 2018-04-11. Bill was the founder of gaylonghair.com , but perhaps there was nobody to prolong the domain. I do not know if Bill's late husband is aware of this.
: For those people who do not know Bill: just read his essay "On Being a Longhair" http://www.choisser.com/longhair/

What a wonderful photo! Bill was a great guy even though I never met him personally. I am sad for this. May he Rest in Peace forever! Godspeed Bill! I shall keep my hair growing in his honor.
