Grandpa,
The passed year and a half I’ve been by your side - thick and thin. We’ve had laughs, jokes, and unforgettable memories. I will forever be grateful I was able to be by your side till your last breath. I am so thankful I have two angels, you and grandma, watching me and being proud of me for becoming an educator just like the both of you. I love you and miss you so much.
With all the love in the world,
Your Best Friend ❤️

Bill was one of a kind ! He loved his classical music , driving with both feet scaring me to death. He always had a smile on his face . He lived for others and had a givers heart. Even though he is gone , he will forever live in my heart ! He will be missed by so many!

I remember all the blonde jokes and always trying to cut my hair off to put it in his bald head. Take care of Eddie and Jacob and say hello to Aunt Lee. We love you Uncle Billy.
