Uncle Bill use to always tell me that I was his "favorite" niece, of course it took me a while to realize, I was his only niece. This was just one of the memories I have of Uncle Bill and his sense of humor. I will miss Uncle Bill, along with his humor and generosity. May peace be with him.

This is the poem that was shared at Bill's service.

I am home in Heaven, dear ones,
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's will.
There is work still waiting for you
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth-
You shall rest in Jesus' land.
When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home:
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!

My Love,
You were so proud of your Scottish heritage and the fact that your Grandfather immigrated from Scotland to St. Louis to help build the train station there. This is one reason why I had Mr. Bell playing the "Bag Pipes" for you. It was so wonderful, I hope you were looking down from heaven. I will always remember you as the most awesome husband in the world. There will never be another you and I will spend the rest of my life worshiping your memory until I join you in our final resting place "Together Forever"
Your Wife

Bill was one of the most ethical, caring, funny, and influential people that I've had the pleasure to know. He played several different roles in my life as I was growing up. He was a family friend in my pre and teenage years, he became my employer when I was old enough to work for someone, he became my step father as time rolled on ,and all the while, I'm thankful to say, he was my friend.

Dear Dad.
You were my best friend, my mentor and most of all my partner while we were "flipping" houses from "03 until you got sick. Even then I went to you for advice. You taught me how to be more patient, listen to others and many other things. You were a great teacher and role model in everything you did. Most of all you taught me the importance of just being there for the one's I love. Dad, I am working very hard to take care of Mom and the home you two shared with so much love. I am keeping the promises I made to you. I hope you have found peace and relief from your suffering. I love you and miss you and will never forget the many lessons I learned from you.

I Wish Peace To My Father. I followed you around as a child, then followed in your footsteps as an adult . You always told me, a parent should raise their child to be better then themself. I'm not sure that's possible. I will never stop trying to live by your example. Your love, patience, forgiveness, generosity and honesty that you shared is a gift I will cherish forever... I love you.

My Uncle Bill is someone I have always admired. While I was in Florida for the funeral it was no surprise to hear how many lives he has affected in a positive way. I will always remember his generosity and good nature. He will be missed by his family in Texas and many others.

Bill my dearest brother. I have always been so proud of you and all the wonderful things you have accomplished in your life. You are such a caring thoughtful person to everyone. You have a real heart of gold. You always make me laugh and I cherish all the good times we have shared. I have been so blessed to have had such a fantastic brother. I love you deeply and I will always carry you in my heart.

Dear Dad,

You will forever be in my heart, and never far from my thoughts. I know some sweet day we will see each other again. Until then, I will continue to miss you endlessly.

My Darling,
Our story began over 40 years ago. First as friends, raising our families, enjoying parties and outings together and then a wonderful miracle happened - you reached out your hand to me and we began our journey together as man and wife. It turned out to be a "storybook" love, marriage and life. As we traveled the world together I discovered that just being with you grew sweeter everyday. Even at home we never wasted a moment and your loving smile and embraces were my warmth, my comfort and my haven from life's storm's. You made even the most ordinary days "extraordinary" and I am so grateful to have shared these years with you my husband, my soul mate, my friend. It has only been a month since you left this wonderful life we had and I am trying to carry on but it is so difficult without your loving support. You gave me the best of you and made each year so sweet. You will always be in my heart, my thoughts and my memories.
I will love you forever my husband.

"I walked a mile with sorrow, and never a word said she, but oh the things I learned from her, when sorrow walked with me" While we are sad that Bill passed - I am truly happy that I had Bill as a friend and we can all rejoice and honor his memory by knowing that he was a great person who lived a good life. He was a man I looked up to because his life struck a balance of work, family, fun and community and everyone he came in contact with was better off for it. My heart is with the entire family.

As I continue to work my hardest, I always see you and I always hear your voice praising me, making me do even better. I know that you are watching me, and smiling like you always do. Miss you and love you Grandpa.
