    Uncle Bill was one funny man! He also loved his family more than life. He taught them all the value of family and it shows with how they all stick together through everything. It is not everyday that you see that anymore! I love you Uncle Bill and miss you dearly! I hope that you are dancing with your sisters up there in heaven!

    We are so saddened by your loss and our thoughts and prayers are with the whole family. We are so glad that we got to see him in March at Janet's surprise party. He was such a "hoot". Regards, Mary & Tim
