Bill always seemed to be at every family function. I always appreciated seeing him at my kids birthday parties. I know it wasn’t always easy for him to get there. I will miss all of our conversations. His stories of working over the road. Bill was always good with the children. Very loving and understanding. Family functions will never be the same without him. Rest in peace Bill. I know you’re in a better place.
