Condolences to Bills family and friends, I miss your calls and your voice, I loved you yesterday and today as I always will. Youve been such a great help to me these last 5 months. I thank God you were there for me as this has been a tough year for many of us and I thank god for the moments in time we got to share. You will be missed. After your 3rd effort getting your tow truck up the hill to your place, last snow storm, you smiled and said "everyday we've got to stop and thank the lord for something" Rest in peace Bill, till we meet again.
