May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

Bill fought valiantly for for others and against the horrible disease that took him. But he was no angry, grim fighter, but instead always a smile and more concern for others than himself. Time to now rest and hear "Well done, good and faithful servant."
