My friend Cheryl, Just wanted you to know how sorry I am for your loss, I had the pleasure of meeting your father at his 96th birthday party. I told him that I would be at his 100th party but God had other plans, as I said before your father's generation was the best this world has ever seen they paved the way for others to follow and I'm glad I was able to meet a real life hero in my eyes. He is definitely in a better place. RIP Sir Hooah!

Papa you were always more of a father figure to me. I have so many memories with you but my favorite was going to Wisconsin with you and Ma. We fished every day with Great Uncle Franklin.
Give Grandma a hug for me.
Love you Papa

I wish the best of prayers and memories of Bill to his entire family and loved ones. I've always respected and honored Bill. He was as generous and genuine of any man I've met. He was a jack of all trades and could fix almost anything. He was a quiet man and so humble. He was a WWII veteran, and a hero in my mind. God bless you and God Speed!

A week ago today our father passed from this life with peace that only God can give to enter eternity with Jesus and many friends but most of all our family. We are so blessed that Our father knew that Jesus is the only way to heaven. Our father turned 99 on April 3rd this year. He was so happy as some friends and family helped him celebrate. He even made it in the local paper. He was also a WWII Combat Engineer. He had trouble believing that he was 99 because most of the time didn’t feel that old. Our father was an amazing man. He loved unconditionally, had the biggest heart to help people. He loved seeing people smile as he handed them a rose from his garden. My sister and I are so blessed that he fell in love with our mother and became our father. Thank you Jesus for loving our mother and father.
