  1. I can’t believe I missed seeing you by 2 days. At least we got a chance to talk on the phone a few days earlier and I’m so grateful for that. We will all miss you Uncle Bill.

  2. It’s been a while since we saw you, but I remember that great smile and sense of humor! I still have my wooden cross proudly displayed in my living room. God be with you and all your family who I know will miss you! Rest in peace.

  3. Tim, may you and your entire family find comfort in the memories of your Dad. My condolences on your loss.

  4. Bill and Carlisle were on my Meals on Wheels route. I came to love them. Bill was the one to come to the door, and we always spent a few minutes chatting. Recently when Bill went into hospice care, Carlisle would let me go in to see him. We would hold hands and visit. He was so handsome and wonderful. I am going to miss him. I am sad. Love to Carlisle and the family.

  5. May God be with all of you through this sad but rejoiceful time. God bless all of you and my heart is full of sadness. Your Dad was a special person to me and so many good memories Jackie and I had over all the years with your Mom and Dad.
