Yesterday, September 16, 2007, the world lost a wonderful father, husband, brother, uncle, grandfather, and great grandfather.
Bill died in his home surrounded by his sons, daughter-in-law, and wife of 30 years. He lost his battle with cancer.
He was a truly great person. I never heard him raise his voice. He loved his family and would do anything for them.
Papa, give Kristen a hug for me in Heaven. Look after us, and help us help Nana, she is lost without you.
We love you so.
