Uncle Bill,

Losing some one is never an easy thing,
your left with the special memories they'd bring.
You touched many lives with your kindness and love,
when strength comes to mind, you're who we'll think of.
Just take comfort in the love expressed for you,
In your absence we'll do the best we can do.

Uncle Bill,
You were a blessing to those who knew you. I will always remember you and the times we shared when I was a kid and you and aunt Judy lived in Interlochen with the girls. I was always afraid of that lake behind your house but always went down the path with you to see the deer tracks by the salt blocks you always had set out. You will be missed but I take comfort in knowing that my dad is no longer alone up there and will have someone to spend time with. Two special men in one special place.....

I love you!
