Most of my memories are from a very long time ago but I still hold them very dear in my heart. Bill always made you feel welcomed, loved, and part of "the clan". He was a fun guy who worked hard and gave a lot of himself to others. I will truly miss him and always cherish the times I've spent with all of you in Charlotte. Love you guys. Hold on to each other. You are always on my mind and in my prayers.

You were a common fixture at St. John Neumann, Both you and Marie would always smile as my family and I passed by. Who knew that all these years I never knew you grew up in Johnson City, NY. We grew up in Endicott, just a stones throw away. You will be greatly missed by so many of your friends at St. John Neumann. May Gods perpetual light and love shine upon you forever.
