Miela Birute ir visa McNulty šeima-
Išreiškiame jums visiems giliausią užuojautą netekę mielo gyvenimo draugo, vyro, tėvelio, senelio- Bill.
Liūdime kartu su jumis…..

To you, Ruth, and to all of your wonderful family-
Learning of Bill’s passing saddened us all, and we send our sincerest sympathies to each of you.
No one else can feel your sorrow, or truly understand the void that Bill’s passing has left- as your cherished partner in life, as a wonderful father, much beloved grandfather and treasured friend - but sometimes knowing that others care and share your loss, I hope, may be a source of strength and courage.
Bill’s calm, yet strong presence was always palpable during family gatherings here in Cleveland, and his ready smile, focus and attention were always on you in the interesting conversations we would share.
May it help you to know that there are many who are thinking of you and caring about you all in this difficult time of farewell.
“May the angels lead you into Paradise… may the Martyrs come to welcome you and lead you to the Holy City- the New and Eternal Jerusalem..
May the choir of angels welcome you where Lazarus is poor no longer-
May you have Eternal Rest”…….

Rest in Peace, Bill…..

Jonas, Virginija and Anika Muliolis

Bill was a good man and a good friend. I met Bill and Ruth in the early '80s when we both lived in Cleveland Heights. Bill was part of a men's prayer group that we both attended weekly for several years. He was a faithful believer in Christ and a calm and gentle presence at all times. His two wonderful sons, Paul and Sam, came to my Boy's Bible Club and stood out for their fine character and high intelligence, just like their dad! Bill's daughter Nika also reflects her dad's commitment to the Lord and to her children.
Ruth cared for Bill in his later years with devotion and love. To all of the McNultys, I pray that God will comfort you with many sweet memories of a great husband and dad. One last thing...please honor your father by staying true to the faith in God which he modeled for you all so well. Your reward will be to see him again one day, young, healthy and fully restored! God bless you all, Bob and Becky Mandel

Bill's joy is now complete in the presence of his Savior Jesus! Though we will miss dear Bill at our wonderful Sunday gatherings and faith filled conversations, we know without a doubt that we will be reunited one day in Heaven. May every joy filled memory be happy hugs from Heaven for all who know and love Bill. What a friend we have in Jesus and what a special friend we have in Bill, Ruth, and all his family and friends. We are honored to know Bill and so appreciate the faith filled life he lived including his service to his country. Dear ones are giving Bill the grand tour of Heaven....we can only imagine!

We had so many happy times - Sunday lunches after church, monthly get togethers with the gang for covered-dish meals, and in-depth Bible discussions with the different teachers at Bayside Community Church. I will miss Bill's easy smile and quick Irish wit. Especially him sitting under my fringed lamp, wearing the shade like a hat.
What a good sport! He and my Tom are now touring Heaven together.
I'm here for you, Ruth. May the Lord bless you and comfort you now and always. Love, Janet Rockey

We knew Bill as a loving husband, father and son of God. He loved sharing God’s word and the free gift of salvation. I am grateful for the time I shared with Ruth and Bill at their Bible study. I will always remember our timeline chart, all the laughs and all the knowledge that was shared. We will miss seeing Bill walk with Emilija around the island and his gentle, kind spirit.
