You have our deepest sympathy for your loss. Over 46 years ago Bill was an usher in our wedding. We went out to dinner several times and to the dances at the firehouse many years ago. Several years ago Bill drove by with one of his hunting buddies (who was a neighbor) and stopped by for a chat. It was great to see him again.

Uncle Bill never took himself too seriously, and didn't let others around him take themselves too seriously either, but he lived a seriously good life. I believe he's better now than he has ever been, but we are the worse off that he's not still with us, cracking jokes and encouraging us to dream big dreams.

I would like to say how sorry I was to hear about Bill's passing. We went through orientation at DHCI at the same time and in turn he was the boss of my department until his retirement. I have quite a few memories of Bill as I know you must have millions. My name by the way is Tammy Thompson. Please take care of yourself.
