To teach us FAITH, LOVE, AND FAMILY and what it meant..Now that God has called you home; YOU did your job here on earth. You gave me the strength to except every challenge that was dealt to me. I will always cherish your memories and Love.. You are my HERO..

As a lifelong neighbor, my memories of Mr Bill are endless. Numerous birthday parties as kids (& adults!), his potato salad on Christmas Eve, countless summer days when Deb & I would "lay by da pool"...all part of the cornerstone that he created at 9300. Growing up with Deb, Vickie & Larry, I was part of their inner circle- we became more like family. So many laughs & good times that I will always treasure. Thank you, Mr Bill. Frau BLUCHER!

The greatest man I’ll ever know. And I was the luckiest boy in the world to be raised by such a wonderful dad.
Everything I’ve ever accomplished and everything I do in my life is a reflection of his love and guidance.
His spirit will be with me forever. A true blessing and I am forever grateful.

After writing about 70 years of memories. I screwed it up. I was talking to Victoria Lee, That's right every time I screwed up Vickie was always involved. 1st the powder on the bed, then cracking the Ice. I can hear you and Loray laughing at me the same way you guys laughed at me when I was age 10. Seventy years later, history is repeating itself. After several hours of editing and re-editing: it was time to save and send. Well, you guessed it, I did something [WRONG]. I now have to re-write it. I just wanted to say thanks for all the wonderful memories, you have left me with. You and Loray taking me to Carolina What a fun summer I had. Christmas making sure Billy, Yemmy, Pat, and myself always had a nice X-Mas. Weekends at Cape Mae Beach, with the Jones and Ortloff's My graduation from 1959, & 1961. Loray taking me for my Prom Gown. So excited. You guys made me feel so special. Thank you for the memories shared with my children. They could not wait to come to visit after X-Mas, to guess the theme used for the decorations and what was the new things found in the X-Max garden. They were so excited about winning money these memories are a few of my favorites. Enjoy your new life with God, Family, and Loray. She has waited a long time to hold you again Thanks for 70 years of memories. Till we meet again. Give Bob my family a hug for me. Hold Loray & Mom extra tight just from me.

Mr Bill, as we knew him. Was always a great source of fun and good times. We always seemed to gather around his house. Halloween was always a special time we'll always remember his crazy costumes we couldn't wait to see.

I just adored Mr.Bill, as most of the kids in the neighborhood knew him to be. He always had fun things going on and invited the kids from the neighborhood to come and cool down in the pool, he always had fun stories to tell and songs to sing to us on his front porch, I especially loved the song, "John Jacob Jingle-Himer Smith." I loved how he would put so much into their yearly Halloween costumes, every year it would be a new surprise. There was no one else like Mr.Bill, he was one of a kind that's for sure, he watched out for us all. Now he's a guardian angel watching over his family and making sure they are in the loving, caring hands of the Lord. He will surely be missed. We love you Mr.Bill.

When the Lord calls our loved ones home, he leaves a gift of memories in exchange.

My borther-in-law Junior (as we call him) have given me years of wonderful memories. He taught me how to swim. Even through his medthod was scary. He told me that the water was deep (50'), then he said when you come up kick your hands and feet and come to the pier. I thought that we'll be going into the water together. Then he through me in. I was scared as hell. Looking back at this, I came to realize he had given me confidence in myself at an early age. He was never going to let anything happen to me. I will miss him dearly. You sister-in-law Pat.

Oh UNcle Jr. I have so many wonderful memories of you. One of my favorite is watching you and Aunt Josie on the dance floor. Another is the if your happy and you know it song you would sing before you left Grandmoms Jones after a holiday gathering. Your faith and love for your family was something I always admired. Fly high my dear Uncle and enjoy Eternity with the Lord.

Love always ,


The man loved a lady in a hat!
