All of you have remained in my thoughts since hearing of Bill's passing. I have also been flooded with many memories of kindness, laughter, and friendship. You are an exceptional family I cherish and appreciate for the positive difference you have made in my life. He was many times a father figure and compassionate friend to me. I'm not foolish enough to think I know any words that would comfort you. But please know I love you all as extended family. Though we may not see or speak as often as we used to, I will always be there if you ever need me.
