We always enjoyed seeing Bill & Patty dancing. He was one of our Stingers golfers and I played with him several times. Sorry to hear about his passing, may he rest in peace and get a hole in one.
Bill's mother and mine were best friends growing up. I can remember many times we shared together, particularly the birthday parties. May you rest in peace, knowing all the lives which you so positively touched throughout the years. I will be forever thankful for the fact that you touched mine!
John and I will be thinking of your wonderful family this weekend. We are sorry we are unable to be with you to mourn and celebrate Bill’s life. He was such an outstanding person, so competant and yet full of fun. We know you will miss him and we hope the many memories you have will provide some comfort. We look forward to seeing some of you in St. Louis. With Love, Sally McCarthy
So sorry for the family's loss. May your precious memories sustain you as you grieve such a loving, kind man.
