We have been blessed to share grandchildren with Bill and Bea. The grandkids are the best and I know Bill thought so too. Although he was the quiet one, we will miss him at our family gatherings. Our prayers are for Bea, Cheryl, Missy, and Heide, their spouses, and family. May you all be blessed with God's peace.

Sending my deepest sympathy to you and your family,
Mary Wysocki
