    You were the most greatest grandfather in the whole world. I can’t believe that your really gone, it seems like a
    nightmare and i don’t like it I wanna wake up from it and have you with me again. I feel empty without you. You meant everything to me. I wish I was able to say a final goodbye and tell you how much you mean to me, how much i appericiate you and that I LOVE YOU! You will always be in my heart papa. I love you forever and always you are the best grandfather ever.
    I LOVE YOU! ~R.I.P~

  5. Dad, I have a heavy heart right now and I can’t believe that we will not be able to have another ‘heart to heart’ talk. When I was sick you came to visit me in the hospital and I will always treasure that visit because we had a great talk. You questioned if you did a good enough job raising the kids – you wondered if you should have done something different. I reasurred you that you did alright. You became an instant parent and had a huge responsibility. All the kids are doing well for themselves – how do I know this? Everyone has come together right now, everyone is together to get through this tough time. Somehow this tragedy has gotten everyone closer because we all love you no matter what was done right or what was done wrong. I hope I was a good enough daughter-in-law to you. I will miss you and I hope that we could still have a ‘heart to heart’ when I pray to you. I love you, Mary Ann

  6. Dad,

    Tomorrow is the day that you will be laid to rest. I’m not sure how I’ll be on the outside but I know I’ll be torn up on the inside. I’m so glad that you were chosen to be my father. I’ll always treasure the good times we had together and understand any of the hard times. You will always be in my thoughts and in my heart. It’s tough to think about how I wont be able to pick up the phone and call you to say hi or to just jump into my car and stop by. I know I’ll be able to see and talk to you in my dreams and I look forward in doing just that. Thank you again for all that you have done for me and until I’m able to hug and kiss you again in heaven I LOVE YOU with all my heart.

    Love forever and ever your daughter Sandy.

  7. Dad,
    I miss you so much. I can’t believe your gone. It’s so unfair. A big piece of my heart is gone. You will hold it forever. I feel so empty inside. I’m not sure if I have the strength to know how to go on. I will have to look to god each day to show me how, to point me in the right direction and to give me strength. As I fumble around in the dark I will think of you and look for the light. As I thought about you going home I never thought it would be your final home, your resting place up in heaven with God. I know you are no longer suffering, we, your loving kids and family are suffering for you. You will always be my father. A wonderful, kind, compassionate, genourous man. You cared for me all my life and I know you will still look after me, even in death. I can’t explain how much you mean to me, your everything. I’m so blessed to have had such a wonderful father. Me, Freddie, Josh, and Ashley are in so much pain. Please help me, us, get through this. Please look after Justin for me. I will join you in heaven someda. I will love you forever and always your daughter, Sue.

  8. DEAR GRANDPA BILL- WOW… THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST SHOCKING SITUATIONS OF MY LIFE. I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE ACTUALLY GONE. IT STILL HASN’T HIT ME YET, I TRY TO MAKE MY SELF FEEL BETTER BY THINKING ABOUT THE DAY I PASS AWAY AND REUNITE WITH YOU IN HEAVEN ALTHOUGH I KNOW THAT WON’T BE FOR AWHILE. I KNOW YOU WILL DEFFINATELY GO TO HEAVEN BECAUSE YOU ARE SUCH A GREAT PERSON GRANDPA.WHEN I WENT TO THE HOSPITAL TO VISIT YOU ON MONDAY FOUR DAYS BEFORE YOU PASSED AWAY I KNEW YOU WERE VERY SICK BUT IN MY MIND I THOUGHT EVERYTHING WAS GOING TO BE OK. I REGRATE NOT SPENDING AS MUCH TIME WITH YOU THAT I SHOULD HAVE BUT I CAN’T CHANGE THAT, I GUESS THAT IS SOMETHING THAT I WILL REGRATE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. I FOUND OUT THAT YOU DON’T REALIZE WHAT YOU HAVE UNTIL ITS GONE. I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER ALL THE GREAT TIMES WEVE SHARED TOGETHER DURING HOLIDAYS.I WILL NEVER FORGET MY NICKNAME YOU CALLED ME SINCE I WAS LITTLE ‘SMILEY’. I WILL NEVER FORGET ALL THOSE GREAT BIRTHDAY CARDS YOU’VE GIVEN ME FOR MY BIRTHDAY. GRANDPA YOU GET THE BEST BIRTHDAY CARDS THEY ARE SO FUNNY .I WILL ALWAYS MISS AND REMEMBER SO MANY GREAT THINGS ABOUT YOU GRANDPA OH HOW MUCH I WISH YOU WERE STILL HERE. I WAS LOOKIN FOWARD TO SEEING YOU ON CHRISTMAS WITH THE WHOLE FAMILY. I KNEW THIS CHRISTMAS WAS NOT GOING TO BE THE GREATEST CHRISTMAS BECAUSE YOU WERE SICK AND EVERYONE WAS WORRIED ABOUT YOU INCLUDING MYSELF BUT I THINK IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER THEN IT IS GOING TO BE NOW WITHOUT YOU. I DID NOT EXPECT THIS TRAGEDY TO OCCURE ITS VERY UPSETTING. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A HOLE IN MY HEART BECAUSE OF ALL THE PAIN THAT I WILL GO THROUGH WITH OUT YOU IN MY LIFE GRANDPA. GRANDPA YOU ARE MY #1 GRANDFATHER I WILL LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU FOREVER. LOVE YOUR GRANDAUGHTER SHANNON

When my mom told me the news that you were gone…I felt so much pain in my heart and cried so hard. i couldn’t belive that you were gone. I miss you so much. I feel bad that i never really got to see you or talk to you as much. But i know that you are in a better place. You are missed by alot of people and and are loved so much! I miss you so much!
    Love, Gina

  10. Grandpa Bill,

    I cant believe God took you from this life into your eternal life. I was finally ready to have a talk with you about how I felt on all this stuff… Lloyd and I had been talking for a few weeks on how I felt about stuff and he had helped me build up enough courage to sit down and talk to you on how I felt. I was planning on telling you all this stuff on Thursday, I finally had a day off of work, but mom told me you were not feeling good and you did not want any visitors. I was ready to tell you thank you for all you have done for me in the past 24 years of my life. Being a grandpa to me, my brother and sister. I wanted you to know that I love you and that I wanted to start coming over more often to visit. Lloyd and I have talked about when we have kids we wanted them to be able to see you, because I had the chance to know my great grandparents. I was ready to just tell you everything… I hope that even though I did not get the chance to tell you this, you know now. Lloyd and I had such a great visit with you a few weeks ago. Lloyd loved talking to you, and it was nice for me to be able to see you and talk to you. I think the last time I spent that much time at your house I was just a little kid. I just want you to know that I love you very much, and I hope one day we will be able to have the conversation Ive been waiting to have with you. I will always LOVE YOU…
    Love always and forever
    Andrea (and Lloyd)

    Love always & forever Jean
