Look at that smile...that is the smile of someone who loved to tease! From as early as I can remember Uncle Bill would tease me and my sister by saying we had stinky feet. Boy would I get angry about it when I was very little, but as I got older that was just our “thing” with Uncle Bill.

I will always treasure my memories and keep him close to my heart ❤️

I was 16 the day Bill was born & oh what a joyous day it was, my brother & his wife always lived next door to us so he spent a good share of his time with Gram , Gramps & his "favorite aunt" during his growing years so he & his brother who came along five years later became very close to me . I thanked my brother & his wife everyday for sharing them with me. He will be greatly missed as is his brother so until we meet again know that I will hold dear each & every memory of you in my heart . .

From the little boy who was best friends with my brother to my wedding, to becoming he uncle of my children and grandchildren and through the loss of my parents, in-laws and my husband... Bill was always right there for me... that constant, caring and loving presence. It was my honor to know and love him for so long and so well. May he rest in peace til we meet again.
