My Uncle Bill...My GodFather...Proud my parents (your brother John & Eleanor) selected you at my Baptism for you to be my GodFather.
It is mentioned on how you knew your family members Birthdays down to grand children.. nieces and nephews. What I always remember is your sense of humor. You would say 'Did you get my Christmas card' and I would say yes...thank you...and you would say 'Well I didn't get yours' as he smiles.
Love you Uncle Bill...RIP. I know my daughter welcomes you in Heaven with Big Hugs.

Billy, Lee and Brian...........we loved your dad and always enjoyed being with him. He was a great family man. We remember him flying from one state to another so he could celebrate several of his granddaughters' graduations on the same day! He was a great guy, and we share in your loss of a good man. May your wonderful family memories help you during this very tough time.
love, John and Rockette
