    Michael and Cathy,
    I am sorry to hear of Uncle Bill passing. I remember fun and happy times of us playing at the apartments. Your dad always had a smile on his face and I know will be missed.

    May he Rest In Peace.

    My heartfelt condolences to Cathy, Michael and family. Uncle Bill was truly such a wonderful and kindhearted man. I cherish the memories that I have of spending time with him and Marlene during my youth. I have enjoyed having him in my life these past several years from afar.
    R.I.P sweet, kind man. I am sure God has reserved a special room for you.
    Much love,
