Kim, I am so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. I just found out yesterday. If I can be of any help just call.

Kim, my heart goes out to you at this sad time. Sorry that I cannot be there for you but I know others will be. It seems just like yesterday that Bill was hounding all of us at the store to get him fixed up with you and we would just laugh at him and say "she is too young for you". Well that didn't stop him and apparently he was right so he just ignored all of us and went after you by himself. After 21 years it was meant to be!! I am so sorry for your loss and if there is anything that I can do or just listen, just give me a call or better yet --come visit. I love you, Betty

Bill, you were such a wonderful man...so quick to help anyone with anything. Always an open house w/anyone welcome. Always in a good mood. You were one of the finest men i have ever known, i know you will be missed by alot of people. It was a great pleasure to have known you and to have spent many summer days with you; my next door neighbor, my good buddy, my confidante as well as mentor. Will see you on the other side. I'm sure you and dad are having a 'bottoms up" moment as i type this :)
