:( :( :(

Bill & Cathi are always one of my favorite teams ever. Season 19 is the first season that I watched after missing TAR for five years and I instantly rooted for them because of their spirit despite their age and everything.

My deepest prayer to Cathi and all their family :(

 :( Very sad. I kinda worried that one of them had died after seeing new post banner before opening this page.
Come on watch my race (Lemontail's The Amazing Race 1) currently going on here!

Life is beautiful.

Very sad news. I saw a tweet that mentioned Bill's death this morning and was hoping it was wrong. Then I came here and found that, sadly, it was true. My thoughts and prayers go out to Bill, Cathi and their friends and families.

Saw the same tweet too; and my reaction was the same. So sad to know that it's true. :'(  My condolences to Cathi and their family.

Yeah, I had a similar feeling.

They were so sweet, lovely and awesome on their season.  I guess I have nothing more to say other then, condolences to the family.

Bill and Cathi had fun reading this thread recently. I know they will deeply appreciate all of your comments.

I hoped to see them again in the next All-star season before they become too old for the race.  :(

So sad to read this.  So Bill is the first previous male racer to leave us, then?  All of the others we've lost so far have been female. :(
