Bill and my brother, Richard Gardner, had a friendship for many years. For many passing thru, you meet friends but they had a true friendship of much laughter shared together. Bill and Sandy were always there. Bill will be missed greatly but all will cherish memories. I will think that Dick held open the pearly gates for Bill...
To The family....know how special Bill was and will always....remain in our hearts. Love and prayers. Maggie

My Mom was Bill's older cousin, Ida Morris Hunsdorfer, and his Mom was my Great Aunt Kate.
The last time my Mom & Dad rented a Manasquan beach cottage for their kids & grandkids Bill & Sandy helped them out immensely by offering Fred a real guest room of his own in their lovely home away from the charming 6 grandchildren for brief respite.
And Sandy was a lovely, caring nurse in a career shared by Kate, Ida, and Petey Morris Periale. What a wonderful family.
