ARRL DXCC Desk Manager Bill Moore NC1L injured in accident

I was stunned this weekend to learn the news that a longtime friend Bill Moore, head of the DXCC Desk at the ARRL in Newington CT, was seriously injured in a car accident two weeks ago.

The following news is from K5FUV, Bill Kennamer. 

"DXCC Manager Bill Moore, NC1L, was seriously injured in an automobile accident about two weeks ago.  His neck was broken, leaving him paralyzed from his upper body down, with limited movement of his arms.  Recovery will be difficult and slow, and is not expected to be total.  Bill would like to hear from his friends.  He is currently in the Mount Sinai Rehab Hospital in Hartford, but cards and well wishes should be sent to 92 Reservoir Rd, Newington, CT 06111”.

From Bernie, W3UR/1 Hartford, CT

"Friday K5FUV, Bill Kennamer, and Bernie McClenny, W3UR/1 visited Bill at the rehab hospital.  We spent a few minutes with NC1L, Bill, who was extremely glad to see us.  I gave him one of the ARRL Centennial Convention coins and told him how successful the event was going.  He was very happy to hear the news and the greetings from his friends.  Bill’s sister-in-law Gina was there in the hospital and asked us to tell Bill’s friends that he would love to hear from them.  So if possible let’s all show Bill our love and concern for our dear friend by sending him our QSL with good wishes. I know Bill and the family would greatly appreciate your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time."
