I’m so sad that I cannot be there on Saturday. I love you Uncle Bill! I will be there in my heart with Aunt Norma, Denise, Delwin, and the rest of the family. We are going to miss you, but know without a doubt that we will see you again.

I miss you with all of my heart Dad. You taught me right from wrong and loved me no matter what. I love you Dad!

Missing you already brother. You were a true “man after God’s own heart”. A real soldier of the cross. You have been missed since your illness and you will be missed but not forgotten by all who knew you and loved you.
