One of the best memories I have of Uncle Bill is when he and Aunt Paula drove all the way down to Miami to visit my mom and I. It was a wonderful time with family that we didn't get very often, and it was as simple as sitting inside the Dairy Queen I worked at, snacking on ice cream I had made (I believe I was eating a blizzard) and talking about anything from family to photography. He is very missed.

I had met Bill several times and know he was truly your Rock, Paula.
I pray that God gives you the strength to get through this most difficult time. He is in a better place and I am sure he is looking down at you and saying you will be ok. Take care Paula and know that I am praying for you and wishing you the best!!

I have so many wonderful memories of my husband and I and I will treasure them forever. I am lost without him. Our story goes back to November, 1970 to 1974, when life took us in different directions. Our paths crossed again in 1995. He was my safe haven and my rock. I miss him with all of my heart. He was a kind and gentle soul. Never said a bad word about anyone and never complained about anything.

I love you, Bill.
