It is with deepest sympathy that I offer sincere condolences to the family of my Uncle Bill. Though our families may have lost touch over the years, I will always remember visiting my Uncle Bill and his family many years ago with my Grandmother ( Nana) and was so impressed by the respect that he commanded from his family and how they loved him. I have thought often of Uncle Bill and his family, remembered them fondly and wished them well over the years. It is now with great respect and admiration for this family that I offer my heartfelt sympathy. May God Bless and Comfort you at this difficult time and give you strength for each new day.
Sincerely,
Kathleen ( Joule) and Louis Rainero

Bill and I were Charter Members of the Terre Haute South Rotary Club when it started in 1979. He was a leader in forming it. What a special man and humanitarian he was. He was my friend.
May God bless his family in living with their sorrow.
