  14. I was deeply saddened to hear this news, he was always kind to me,
    listened when I needed a friend, running in to him way out where I live now a few years ago made me very happy to see a friendly face.
    We were having a sale way out, and he walks in, looks at me..and just smiled so big like he was glad to see my face from the past as well. We both were surprised we hadn’t seen one another since high school days.
    I go by his house often on my route to see my son and grandson, so many times I said I should stop in and see him. One time I did he was not home. I told him maybe next time. Sadly I didn’t stop in time.
    I will miss you, and our messaging on FB, and all your likes on my posts… very few people know why I post the things I do. But you understood, and were always there to listen, no judgements, and make me smile no matter how bad things were for me at that time. RIP – FLY HIGH MY FRIEND xo You will always be remembered, never be forgotten by any and all who were lucky enough to know you, have you in their life. I am glad I was one of them.

  15. Uncle Bill,
    I don’t really know where to begin. This feels like a bad nightmare we can’t wake up from. I wish you were still here. This world is just not the same without my crazy, silly, loving, caring, and one of a kind Uncle Bill. Birthdays and holidays just won’t be the same without you there. Who is going to eat all the rolls mom burns?!? Uncle Bill make sure you wave to the people and continue being Superman. We will be doing shots of Jack for you. Make sure you take one with us. Fly high our beautiful Angel. I love you so much ❤️

    Love your niece,
    Ashley ❤️

  16. Billy its been a long rd… I miss u my friend… Many times! I am your dear friend… You r a great guy.

  17. Our deepest sympathies go out to the family. People like Bill are truly rare and he will be missed for so many great qualities!! It’s going to be hard not hearing his funny little jokes followed by his one of a kind laugh at gatherings. May you find comfort in time knowing that the ones we love are never gone, they live forever within our heart. 😇❤️Rest easy Bill
