Brother Bill, what am I going to do without you calling, talking to me..we so enjoyed our talks we had. Bill life is not going to be the same for me and Danny. I lost a Best Friend, Best Brother and My Hero. I know you are with your Marcia now, your last years were very stressful on you both Physically and Mentally. Be watching Danny and I will see you again. Brother Bill I loved you with all my heart and soul. Danny said thanks for being his Brother as well, that it was as honor to have you as a Brother, and Thank you for your 20 years of service in the US Army. We Truely Loved You with all our Hearts. Love you Always and Forever, your Sister, Betty Jo & Danny, your brother -in- law you called a Brother.

My Dad was my hero, my best friend, & my staunchest supporter. If you knew him, you know what a kind and generous heart he had. He fought so hard through multiple surgeries and hospitalizations but he was tired of fighting and he missed his beloved Marcia so much and they are now together again and I know he's happy. Although my heart is broken, I have the comfort of so many memories that only he and I shared in all the years I spent taking care of him. He was, and will always be, my heart! RIP Dad, you've earned your rest. I will miss you until the day I see you again. I love you so much!
