    Bill Arnold became my boss at Kodak’s PCIM Division in 1965 and was a good friend and mentor for the rest of his career with Kodak. I met Kathryn soon after and have exchanged Christmas greetings and family updates for many years. Kathryn delighted in her family and I sure will be greatly missed. My prayers are with her family at this time. Cal Graziano
