Uncle Bill was the most fun Uncle a girl could have. He told the best stories about diving and living life to the fullest. I remember sitting on my back porch talking a few years ago, Uncle Bill told me to never be afraid to take chances, live life, and love with my whole heart. I Hope I make you proud sweet man! I will miss you more than you will ever know! I can’t wait to hug you in Heaven!
