Our hearts are breaking for you, too. We met on 'the bus' on the way to work. That blossomed into a friendship that is such a blessing to both Chuck and I. There are some people in ones life that make a everlasting impression and that is you and Bill! Your character and faith is second to none! I am proud to call you 'Dauta' and bear the name 'Kletchen'.
Bill will live on in the hearts of so many people for a long....long time.
I do hope in your sorrow you can feel the love of so many people that God put in your lives. He did more than his share to help the world be a better place!
Much Love from Chuck and Carol

Dear Linda, so sorry for your loss. We remember meeting Bill or (Little Bill as he was know to us so we could tell if we were talking about him or his Dad) when we moved into to the house next door to his Grandparents Ernest and Evelyn Jackson. We are still there in that house. We loved running into the both of you through the years. All our Love to you.

Linda, we are sorry to hear of the loss of Billy. We think of the many times we saw both of you out on your daily walks together. We have many memories when he was born just a few months before our daughter. You are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time in your life.

Linda (aka Sista T,)....our husbands grew up next door to each other and you and I were able to connect over the years by hellos over the back fence, many years of riding the bus to work together with Carol where we became known as the bus buddies and that friendship blossomed into regular coffee dates and celebrating birthdays and family joys and of course the occasional lunch and shopping spree. Once in a while we invited the hubbies along for coffee and we shared many stories and always had a good laugh. Bill was one of the good ones and we were so lucky to have been in his circle and so glad we can remain "Sistas". I'll be there for you......

Love Linda (aka Sista P.) and Chuck

Lin,
Since you taught me my frist ballet class and the first time I laid eyes on Billy Boy in his hospital pants you have been a huge part of our family. There are no words to ease the pain but so many wonderful laughs and memories. I love being able to share a special bond with you both and when we had the chance to chat just the 3 of us about life in general you always gave the best advice. I cherish the times we spent at RL and "to infinity and beyond". I know when we share those moments now Billy Boy will be right there with us smiling that smile and sharing that wit with that awesome laugh. Your both extraordinary people and loved by all, Bill will be missed forever and I will always be here for you, (we kindred spirits always stick together).

Linda, I am so sorry for your loss. You and Bill were such a beautiful couple, and always a joy to be around. Your dance numbers were a highlight of our Golden Age shows. Bill will be fondly remembered. Due to a previous commitment, I am unable to attend on Saturday. My sincerest condolences.
