  2. To my handsome cousin – you always treated me like your special little sister, telling me how beautiful you thought I was, and supporting me in everything I did. I love you so much, your silly smile and laugh, and can’t wait to catch up with you and Dad in eternity. God bless your soul. Your little cuz, Deb

  3. Bill was a good man with a big heart. I used to love when he and Dale would let me hang out and listen to how the big guys viewed the world.

  4. You will be missed so very much Uncle Bill! I am proud to be able to say you were my God Father! I love you dearly!

  5. I will miss my “brother”. His laugh, his pranks, his advice, his love. I know he is sharing a cocktail with Ronnie and playing with Leroy.
