William's Children and Grandchildren, Your Dad and Papa was a great loving man and he will be so missed. Keep all those wonderful memories and silly things you did with him stored in your heart, each one will bring a smile to your face & bring him to you in the memory. You were so blessed to have had such a good man in your life. He was so proud to be a husband and then to add his 3 children. Then such an amazing blessing..... grandchildren one by one. To top it off he got to see great grandchildren. He is soaring with the Angels now and lovenly watching over you all.
