I am so sorry for your loss. While there is nothing that I can say that will make the pain any less, know that Bill touched so many lives, and I pray that God will comfort your family throughout the upcoming days, months, and years as you learn to navigate the seas of life without him.

Sally, Michael, Zach and Kaity, there simply are no words that can express the sorrow in the hearts of all who know you. What a strong and loving man Bill has always been and his love for each one of you here on earth was so strong but I believe in my heart it will reach out to you as time goes on from above too. You are not alone and there are many who will forever help you through this. Sending endless prayers of strength, love and support your way!
