    Shelly and Family, 
    I wish I could take away your pain. May your tears soon be replaced by smiles as you remember the good times and all the happy memories of Bill. I love you guys. 
    I’ll never forget his cooking/concoctions... I remember coming to your house on Albert St. and Bill was cooking a hamburger that took up the whole entire bottom of a large frying pan. And there were so many wet ingredients that it was soupy. I often wonder how that hamburger came out and it always makes me chuckle. 
    RIP Bill. I love you. Thank you for always keeping an open heart and an open door for all us kids. Until we meet again. Xoxo
