Uncle Bill was the real deal. He overcame some major obstacles in his life and was the perfect example of how to turn something bad into something good. Working with him at YOS Prison Ministry on a Wednesday night and then playing Texas Hold’em with him on a Sunday afternoon showed me that he had a caring heart and he also enjoyed having fun. He will be greatly missed by so many family and friends but thankfully he is now Jesus. With Love, Teresa & Greg Czarnecki
