It’s hard to never hear a loved one’s voice again, to never have another conversation. Bill and I had many conversations, mostly about family. I just want you all to know that he was very proud of every member of his family and your accomplishments. He enjoyed your visits and family get together, but especially sitting around talking together. We had some really good times together, going to church, out to eat, getting together at each other’s homes and for me-getting to meet you all, after hearing about you. I could finally put faces to names. Bill has a good family and he will be missed by you all and by me. We all have good memories to sustain us and for that I am grateful. I loved him, I miss him, and he will never be forgotten. Linda
