Dear Mary and family, we just learned today of Bill's going Home to be with Jesus forever. Though sad you must be, nobody is sad that Bill is no longer battling with that often dreaded cancer. Our acquaintance with him was brief but so enjoyable. Just a kind and friendly gentleman that we will remember so well. Cherish his life and memory, and soon we'll join him at the feet of Jesus! We hold you up in prayer, that God will fill you with His peace and joy in knowing Christ who has defeated death for all of us. Love you and hope to see you again soon.

Billy, Ben & Bo, there is nothing I can say to y'all except I loved Bill dearly and I love y'all as well. Also, I will share with you a couple of my favorite memories. When I was little he picked on me a little bit but he also would take me with him sometimes in his 60's Chevrolet to circle the Dairyland I also got to listen to his record player he installed in his car.  When I was in my 20's Bill came to Chicago and brought the 3 of you to my apartment. He hated my cookware so he went out and bought me a set of good ones.(doesn't sound like I cooked for him, I don't remember how the purchase came about). Moving into my 30's,Bill & Mary came to see us when we lived in So,CA.. I learned about his love of hot dogs, as we drove around for a long time looking for a hot dog vendor. He wanted one from Beverly Hills.not many vendors there. We did find him a hot dog somewhere before he left CA. I believe his
 taste for hot dogs was something he tried to satisfy in each place he visited. He never made it to No.CA. to see us.  He will forever be my big brother whom I loved to no end! Sissy (&David) you did not only loose a brother but also your best friend.  I love you y'all.Mary my prayers will be with you.
