I'm so happy to have had a grandpa that loves so much and always helped everyone. You have so many friends and family, it seems like you know everyone! I was lucky to be your granddaughter. I'm glad that you met my daughter your great grandchild. You passed a week after you met her. We got pictures of you two together, you were so happy that I asked for pictures of you two together. You thought she was so great and bragged to everyone. You told us she would be the boss and you were right she is our boss! I regret not spending more time with you, talking to you more, making more memories. But I am glad that we had the memories that we had. I love you. We'll miss you.

Bill, it still hasn't sunk in. I spent most of my life at your house. you, Joyce and Andy are my second family. I didn't get a chance to thank you for all you've done for me all my life. For the things you taught me, advice you gave me, and telling me what I needed to hear instead of what I wanted to hear. I will always remember you for the kind person you were
