It is so difficult to say 'see you later' to an awesome person like Bill but knowing he is in Heaven and it will only be a little time til we see him again is something to look forward to. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. Bill was amazing, funny, kind, and someone I cared about deeply. Keep the good memories always and let Jesus give you peace. Thinking about and praying for
all of you.

I remember spending time with your family when I was a little girl when my mom was having a procedure, then I met you all again as an adult. You all had kind and loving remembrances of those times when I was little. I remember your father as a kind warm and loving man. In difficult times like these, please remember the loving father he was. My heart goes out to you all. Thank you for giving a little girl some fond memories of her childhood.
