Bill was my next door neighbor for the last 7 years... he was kind to both myself and my young children from the moment we moved in! Bill would often go to flea markets and bring my children little toy surprises. One Christmas season, he handed my two children each a $20 bill, as well as 4 other neighborhood children! Bill even taught my son how to hold and toss a football. Bill could often be seen outside trimming his hedges, sweeping the sidewalk, or picking up the many pinecones that dropped from his enormous tree. Whenever he was outside, he would stop and wave as we arrived or departed. Bill made it a point to greet my young daughter as she came home from school almost daily.

When in the chatting mood, Bill would share stories of both his childhood adventures and life as a young adult. He was a man of few words, but over the years, he opened up and shared more and more.

I remember how excited he was when he drove home in his new vehicle! He showed all of us the inside and you could see the pride in his eyes.

Bill was a kind and compassionate neighbor with a big heart and a gentle soul. We will all miss him terribly. Go rest high on that mountain, Bill!
