Not sure what to say?

We are sorry to hear about Bill's passing.We lived across the street from you in Wappinger Falls NY. Andrea and Katy baby sat for our sons. Bill was always available to provide me with advice on home improvement projects which was much appreciated. He gave me his snow blower when he moved to Florida which still works great today and I was thinking of him in the recent snow storm. May he rest in peace.

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.
