Bill has been a huge part of my mother's (Frances) life these past 7 or so years. He always had so much respect for her and for us too. Mom would visit him almost every day; they would play cards, go for a stroll or just enjoy each other's company. We've grown fond of Bill and was grateful for the smile he'd put on my mother's face. He will be sadly missed. Rest easy, Bill

Our deepest sympathies to his family
