It was a a great pleasure seeing Uncle Bill and the rest of the Hilger’s when I was growing up. Bill was always a good Uncle to all of our family. Of course I remember Aunt Sharon fondly too. She has such a great name.😉

One of my favorite residents "Dimples" I will miss bringing you donuts and grapes to satisfy your cravings. I miss your getting up at 3am to have milk or orange juice and a snack. I will miss your humor and that "Smile" that made my day. I will miss you telling me I weigh 225 lbs and then you smile ,while I do the surprised "Look" and then a slight eyeroll. You were one of a kind in your own uniqueness. and you will definitely be remembered. May your soul rest in peace Bill. Love and miss you.

One of my first memories as a child probably 4 or 5 yrs old was visiting Uncle Bill and Sharon in NYC and riding up a elevator in his Apt building. I must have rode it up and down for a hour. How neat!
He and Bobbie visited with me and Joyce just after our 1st son was born in Virginia Beach which was just great to see them. RIP Uncle Bill you will be missed.
