My sincerest condolences to all the family and friends of our Dear Bill Adams.
Bill always had a welcoming smile you could count on for the many years he served as greeter and head usher at the 8:00 o'clock Sunday Mass at St. Louise de Marillac Catholic Church in Warren.
When he moved to Clarkston this year, so many people asked about him.
Bill never complained about anything that we all knew he was struggling with in the last vew years.
We will miss him dearly but keep him in our hearts.
May God BLESS him and KEEP him.

Dear Bill;

My sincere condolences to you and your family. Difficult times, I know. My Mother passed away this past March. Though the years may have been many and we all know ... the time must come for all still, again, it is very difficult.

May you and your family find solace in the many wonderful memories, traditions and traits of Bill Sr. that are a part of you and will live on forever.

Bill - It was a pleasure to have known you and I certainly enjoyed those holidays when we were able to get together. I appreciate how good you were to my grandmother - and, really, to all of my family. I know the last few years were no cakewalk, but you certainly took them in stride. May you rest in peace. You will be missed.

Dear Bill Jr.

I am sorry to hear about your father. I have just experienced this with the passing of my father in December 2011 and understand how empty a part of your life will now be. Please give my condolences and prayers to your family and may God take him home for his final resting place.
