Not sure what to say?

Dear Uncle Bill,

It looks like a year has just about passed since you moved on to the next stage of the life continuum. We all miss you, but know you definitely are cheering us all on to live our best life, and be happy. Say hi to my Mom, Dad, our Abuela, and Aunt Frances for me. Big Hugs, Your Nephew Ted

Here's to a man of true integrity who will be greatly missed...

Bill was one of a kind,warm,loving,and what a hand shake.Bill never missed calling us on our birthdays,over 40 years of calling and chatting about our families,he will be truly missed. Sincerely,Peter and Diana Guidi and family.

Thank you for all the wonderful outings that we shared together... car shows, dinners and basketball games. I enjoyed ever single one of our visits and will cherish the memories forever. One of the many wonderful things I have to say about you is you raised wonderful children. I am blessed to become a part of the Christensen family soon. May God always bless you. I know there is a special place in heaven for you. Love always, Lisa Robles

You will truly be missed, you were a valuable asset to the New York Life family and me,God bless the family and keep you eyes on the sparrow. May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow

On behalf of the entire Christensen family, our thanks to all who attended the rosary and funeral. We were deeply moved by the number of people who came to express their condolences. My father was truly an amazing man, one who really cared about people. It is our hope my father's legacy of compassion, love and generosity will live on in all of you. He will be DEEPLY missed.

Dad, this candle is a symbol of my deepest love for you. Thank you for your unconditional love, devotion. Thank you for being a tremendous father and a devoted, loving husband to mom. You are and always will be within my heart until my very last breath. I can't wait until we meet again. God be with you now and forever.

To a wonderful father and grandfather. You will live in us forever!

Dearest & Beloved Dad:
I cannot thank you enough for the blessing of having had you as my father. I wish we had more time to spend together, for you to have seen your son Mark get married later this year although I know you will be there in spirit. I so wanted you to be here when I also take my marriage vows. You are truly a father in every sense of the word. God called you home as you fulfilled your purpose. I cannot say it will be easy to live without you. I know we will see each...
