You were always family to the Burke's. I have so many great memories of you. Very few people know that you helped me get through one of the toughest times in my life, you may have saved a young man's life and probably never even knew it. You are loved and will be missed.

So hard to believe that you are gone Bill! You were not only a great friend, but also a second father figure to me. I will always remember and treasure the many memories and good times we had together! I love and will miss you my cantankerous, stubborn buddy! Give my mother a big hug from both of us. Rest easy in heaven my friend.

It is difficult to believe you moved to Heaven so soon. The absence you leave in our hearts and worlds can only be comforted by the fact that you are in Paradise, surrounded by family and friends, immersed in beauty. We are certain Bud/dad, and the rest of the family and your friends gave you bear hugs when you arrived in Paradise. Their heavenly gain is our earthly loss. You are loved unconditionally and forever.

Until we all meet again. Keep Heaven smiling.
Wanda, Tim, George, and Beth
