  1. Bill was a very special cousin to me. Bill & I shared so many special moments together. I will miss Bill dearly and my phone calls to him where we would laugh & pick at each other. Bill was my Wild Bill and I his Annie Oakley which started when he visited me i NC and watched me ride horses and he even got on a horse and was led around. My heart is heavy but know that he is in a better place. My thoughs & prayers are with the family. God called another of His angels home.

  • Bill,
    I’m confident you know we did our best to care for you through these last difficult years.
    When you recently said “I can’t take it anymore”, being powerless to ease your pain, all I
    could do was pray for you. Our God heard both of us, and decided to end your suffering
    and bring you home. Now you know the joy that I can only continue to anticipate.
    Rest in God’s peace and love.
    Brother-in-Law,
    Nick
