Bill Lutwiniak's letter arrived


at CROSSW RD just beforehis
death. We at CROSSW RD
Magazinehave lost a good friend
and the crosswordworld has lost
its most prolific constructor.
Bill promisedus he wouldcontribute apuzzle for every issueof
CROSSW RD aslongashelived.
And he did. This is our first issue
without a puzzle by William
Lutwiniak. - jbn
