I will miss Papa Bill so much, all our phone calls. He was with my Mom (Gert) for many years & they had a great adventures together <3. He was beside my Mom during her illness. Bill & my Mom had lived in many mobile homes, like my Daughter put it, they were like Gypsies :) They would live in one place & then do their magic w/ fixing one place up, selling it & go one to the next adventure.
You'll always be in our hearts Bill <3
I was so happy when he & Judy got married, they took good care of each other & loved each other very much. I'll be keeping in touch w/ Judy for sure. R.I.P. Papa Bill <3<3<3
