I was so sorry to hear about Bill. You are in my thoughts and prayers. (I was the clerk in Food when you were teaching. That was a while ago.)

Uncle Bill, you will be greatly missed by so many! I'll cherish all the memories I have of you...from taking me to the "firepops" and then back home again because I wouldn't stop crying, the red balloon at the Buffalo Zoo that went up in the air because my 4 year old self didn't want it tied to my wrist. All the memories of you and dad working on the doll houses, the lake, your bad jokes and a heart to heart a few years back. Love you, Uncle Bill...I will miss you!

William Earl, what can I say, except you left us too soon. My heart is breaking with pain. My children and grandchildren have learned so much from you. Don’t know what we will all do without you. Don’t worry, we will watch over Bessie . I’m going to miss you so much. ❤
