Aunt Dolly and MaryDear Linda, Sharon and Diane... love to all at this difficult time. Bill had a hard fight since Marie passed and we're sure he is at peace now and back with his love of his life, Marie. Love to all and we'll see you this afternoon.
Sharon KeithBill was a true gentleman, a caring father, a generous host, an ethical and astute businessman. I echo the thoughts of others that he will be happy to be reunited with his beloved Marie. It is sad that he is gone. The world could use more men like Bill. But the thought that he will not again be separated from Marie is quite beautiful to contemplate.
Cathie RutterDear Diane, Sharon and Linda: I will forever hold fond memories of your dad. I know that he struggled so, after Marie passed. I can imagine them both now, smiling and laughing together. Two of my most cherished friends. Hugs to everyone (spouses and grandchildren) and especially Emily, with whom I've shared fun times in her younger days. A sad time for all but you have some great memories.
