    Hey Bill, Sure going to miss you on earth, but looking forward to playing UNO card games, Drinking MD 2020 & Smoking cigars with You again. Sorry we didn’t hang out very much as we aged, but have always remembered the good old days.

    God Bless,

    Bill was the best man at our wedding in 1982. We were all pretty tight back then but life got in the way and we drifted apart. We talked of him often, remembering “the good old days”. We always hoped we would meet up again and rekindle that friendship, guess now it’ll be in heaven someday. Nancy is already there waiting with open arms. Our deep condolences to the family.

    Brother what can I say. There are no words good enough to describe the son, brother, father, grandfather, uncle, friend or man that you were. I will forever miss you. If I could have raised my leg high enough when I was standing there watching you fade away from us I would have kicked your ass. Your kids are in good hands but not as good as yours. I love you dear brother.

    You will forever be my uncle Bill. I have such fond memories during my childhood years with you on the ranch. I practically lived with you, Aunt Sarah, and Grandma Geri during the summers and you always treated me as one of your own. I remember BBQs with the cows in the close distance, I remember driving down the country roads in the back of the pick up with the kids to check on the cows, I remember you teaching me how to pet a horse for the very first time. Thank you for saving a part of my childhood. As an adult we often look back at the good and bad times, to help heal the past I try and focus on the good, and Ive always had nothing but good memories with you and your dear family, that is priceless to me. You will be missed dearly.

Leave a Remembrance
