I had the honor of taking care of Mr.Bill at Tucker Hospice House, we called him "Mr. Hollywood" because he loved wearing his sunglasses. My Bill was so sweet, kind and a caring man, he would always have the sweetest smile on his face and want to adjust our name badges on our uniform.... Mr Bill you will be missed and Rm. 13 will never be the same, but we are rejoicing in The Lord that you are now in Heaven and have no more sickness . May God Continue To Bless Kim and Your Family as they are grieving your passing from your Earthly Body and May They Have Peace and Comfort during this time of sorrow.

Aunt Joan and Uncle Bill were my favorite Aunt and Uncle. It seems like just yesterday I was attending their wedding. I will miss them both.

What a kind, sweet, honest, hardworking and dear soul you were Bill. You will truly be missed by family, friends and your sweet Princess. Heaven is truly just a breath away and praising God that you are healed in the name of Jesus.
