Bill may you rest in heaven and watch over Amanda. You two were great to hang out with. Another angel gone to soon. May your memory be cherished forever. God bless the family at this difficult time, I’m sorry. I’ll never forget the bottle of champagne you had sent to our room while we were on our cruise. I thought Wow that was so surprising and so thoughtful . Thanks for the great memories

Bill-I loved you like a son! You know how special you were to me. You loved it that I would answer your phone calls no matter where I was but I don’t answer most calls. Amanda knew if she really needed me to call from your phone bc I would answer! You would smile that precious smile because that made you feel special! I remember you showing up at my house with a portable fireplace when my furnace went out on a snowy Sunday night! I miss you already. You were a very bright spot on this earth and you will be deeply missed!!!!

You were one of my best friends growing up. I will always remember Cub Scouts, Karate, Your pool parties, playing PlayStation, the nerf wars we had in your basement, the sleep overs, the fact you never could come to my house because of your allergies to my cats, Pinewood Derby and racing our cars, Northwood, and so much more. Thank you so much for all the memories and I will greatly miss you.
