Bill contributed so enormously and so enthusiastically to so many
research projects, including BIRN and NIF.  His extensive knowledge,
tireless efforts, good cheer, kindness, patience, and professionalism
will be deeply missed by all of us.

Dear Friends:
 Please be aware that in addition to the memorial service, Bill's
family will be receiving visitors ("sitting shiva") at their home at
302 Cornell Avenue in Swarthmore, PA 19081 at the following times.
(The kids are guaranteed to be there at least at shiva time, and Amy
will always be there.)
On Friday, immediately following the memorial service and for the rest
of the day
Sunday, May 25th, shiva services at 10 a.m, receiving visitors
throughout the day
Monday, May 26th, shiva services at 10 a.m., receiving visitors
throughout the day
Tuesday, May 27th, after dinner time, with shiva services in the
evening at 8:30 p.m.

 We are still trying to determine a recipient  for tzedakah/donations
that people might wish to make in loving memory of Bill.  Please stay
tuned for more information about that.

     Amy, Murphy and Moses Bug

It is with deep sadness and an unbearable sense of loss that I must
inform you that my cherished brother, William John Bug, has left this
earth suddenly and unexpectedly.  He resided in Philadelphia and was
47 years old.  Bill Bug was a beloved brother, son, husband, father,
and friend to so many.  He attended the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology and Columbia University and had been working in the field
of neurobiology and ontology at Drexel University and most recently at
the University of California - San Diego.  He will be deeply missed by
all.  I extend to you an invitation to celebrate Bill's life at a
service that will be held this Friday at 10am at Congregation Beth
Israel in Media, PA.  If you cannot attend, please remember Bill in
your thoughts and prayers.

Date/Time:    Friday, May 23rd at 10am
Location:      Congregation Beth Israel, 542 S. New Middletown Rd.,
Media, PA 19063.
Phone:         (610) 566-4645,    Email: info@bethisraelmedia.org

Bill is survived by his wife Amy Bug; his sons, Murphy and Moses Bug;
his brother, Joel Glickman; and mother, Therese Glickman.

I am sorry that I could not speak with you directly, but email was the
most timely means of delivering the message in a timely fashion.
Please help me spread the word by immediately forwarding this email to
anyone in your address book who knows Bill, Amy, and the boys.  Thank
you so much for the good times you may have shared with Bill over the
years.  I know that he highly valued your contributions to his life.
