It is with deep sadness that I give Bill’s family my condolences. My heart is sadden by his passing. Bill will be missed by many. His love and devotion to his family will never be forgotten, his zeal for life, his love for animals, his love for humanity, his service to our country, and best of all, his humor. Bill always made people smile. While the earth is dark with his passing, The heavens are brighter with his ascension. My prayers for Jan, Vickie, Tom, Eric and “suesue” that you can be at peace in due time knowing Bill is at rest, and acceptance of your lives without him on earth be realized as just a waiting period until you see each other again. May a God lighten your heavy hearts and shine his light upon you, grant you mercy and goodwill. With much love, Cynthia and sons,( Benjamin & Riley ) .
