Not sure what to say?

Such a very impt. part of my life growing up. I am so lucky to have been known by this wonderful and patient man. He is happy with his love in heaven but until we see again I say, I love you Bill and am so happy that aunt Chris brought you into our family. Now I can talk to you daily without the help of wires. Prayers and best wishes always, Pat

I remember fondly his gentle and gracious care for me as I was growing up. May he rest in peace, and rise in glory!

Truly a fine, fine man. He will be missed....until we meet again. Say hello to Aunt Chris for me Uncle Bill.



I, too, served on the USS Appalachian in the Marine Detachment. I'm a Brooklyn boy and sorry I did not know that William was in San Ramon. Would like to talk to any of you. MY phone is 415-824-5097 (in San Francisco). My condolences.

I loved talking Notre Dame football with Mr. Shanahan! Rest in peace and God be with you.

Pop Pop will always have a special spot in our hearts. We are so thankful the McCarthys shared him with us.
