Greetings!
I did not have the fortune to know your loved one.
My message is this...as I have been reading and following the harrowing , tragic and reprehensible story of, “The Whit House Boys” I salute the life of Bill Price.
Having viewed your lovely video, it is more than apparent that he lived his life surrounded by loving family and friends.
It is in his genuine smile in each and every photo!!
I applaud a life well lived, despite the horrors he suffered.
I reach out to give every family member and friend, a gentle long hug in his memory.
With love,
Mary Beth

What stands out most of my memories of Uncle Bill was the way he looked at my Aunt Janice. The love and respect and admiration I saw in his eyes when she was near. He was a proud hard working and caring man. He accepted all of us from day one as if we had been a family all along. I always enjoyed how he would pick at us when he was around. I'm honored to have called you Uncle Bill. I love you and will miss you dearly!

Bill was one of the sweetest and caring persons that I had the pleasure to meet. He had a very contagious smile. He was always in such a good mood and could always make you smile. Bill and Janice was made for each other. I will miss you Bill and I love you Janice. Peace to you Bill and God continue giving you strength Janice.

Bill and I met later in life. He used the old line "where have you been all my life?" I replied "Looking for you." We said this to each other many times. No relationship is perfect and ours certainly wasn't - but our love was strong, and grew stronger with time.
Bill brought many wonderful people into my life; his children and his many, many friends. A special mention to his sister Connie, who he said saved his life and rescued him from that horrible school for boys.
Bill was a positive person, despite the horrible childhood he had to endure. He made no excuses, accepted no excuses, and he made the most of life.
Bill was a witty, entertaining person who was always the life of the party and the loudest voice in the room. Even near the end, when he was in the hospital for the last time, and was so very sick, the nurse came in to get him for a sonogram and he asked "Why?? I'm not pregnant!!"
Bill always did his best to take care of me, right to the end. He will always own a huge part of my heart and my love for him will never die.

I loved Bill like a brother and he loved me like a sister. We butted heads a few times because we were both opinionated and stubborn, but he would do anything for me and vice versa. When he first got sick - before the cancer diagnosis - he took 2 full days off work to help me get moved from Apollo Beach to Brandon. The appreciation I felt was indescribable, and I hope I did enough over the past two years to show him how much he meant to me. I loved him very much and I will always miss him.
