    Dear Ann, Joyce, Ed and families, My deepest condolences for the loss of Bill. I have always enjoyed seeing him when I went to Geneva and enjoyed his enthusiasm for golf. Our friendship went back many years, all through high school and elementary school. We all look at our own mortality as we lose our long time friends. We will all miss Bill, time will heal but the world will not be the same without him. My prayers and thoughts are with all his family and friends, this is a very sad time. Love and condolences……..Jackie Hart Rogazione

    Dear Mary Kay and Family, I’m so sorry to hear of this. I remember your Dad from when we were kids. Tall, handsome and very funny dry sense of humor. I wish I could be there in person to give you all a hug. Sending love and prayers to help you in this difficult time. Debbie

    I am personally going to miss Bill. Although we only met each other less than 2 years ago we became good friends and I had the highest respect for Bill. He will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

    I will miss Bill. He did many things for me after John died and was always a good good friend. Ann Bill & I and our group had many great moments and get togethers. we were school friends and became life long friends and I will cherish all those times with Bill and as I said I will truly miss him and will not have any one to discuss WW11 movies with. God Bless You Bill

    Mary K, Our hearts and prayers are with you and your family. Please know in your heart as we do that the suffering is over for your Father and the healing for you and the family will come with time. I am sure that your Father would want you to celebrate his life rather than mourn his passing. Love, Tammi & Jim Moran

    My grandfather was a great man. I am glad that I have adopted so much from him such as his ears, his sense of humor, his love of baseball, and notre dame. I will truly miss calling him after my baseball games and after Notre Dame football games. He taught me so much of what I know today and I will cherish the memories I had with him. His last couple months will be special to me because even though he was sick he still took the time to come and see my baseball games. I am glad that I was able to give him joy in his final months. He will be remember forever. I know he will be with guiding me through life. I will live my life by the quote his father gave him and that he live by ‘Life is for the living.’ I love you grandpa.

    My memories are less vivid after 25+ years, so I’ve forgotten much, but I’ll always remember Mr. Dailor’s kindness, work ethic and love of Mrs. Dailor and his children. His actions and words helped teach an impressionable teenager to be a better man, husband and dad. My condolences to all.

  13. Mary K Dailor Comtois on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    My only wish is that my children have the same fondness and love for me as I do for you and mom. Your house was always home, a place where I felt tremendous love. You live forever in our hearts. Your loving daughter

    To the whole family: I’m so sorry to hear of Mr. Dailor’s passing. Growing up across the street, I always saw him as a kind and gentle person. He was taken away too soon. I’m so sorry for your loss.

    Uncle Bill is one of my favorite persons to have ever known I’m deeply sadden about his passing he will always be remembered in my mind as a warm and caring person who always took the time to speak to us children. My prayer is that he was able to come into the present of the Lord Jesus and find the comfort that only Jesus can give. Well done Bill you always rocked!!
