To my Aunt Hilda and my cousins, prsyers and much love and hugs being sent to you all. I have wonderful memories of Uncle Bill taking time to always show me around and all his projects he was so fond of around the hone and garden. He showed so much love to me and my children and my mom every time we came and visited. I will always cherish the memories and laughs we shared. Rest In Peace. Love always, Jill and family (photo is from my wedding in Margate, NJ with Ahnt Hilda and my mom)
