Uncle Bill, I wait for the day we all join once again as family. My memories of you are in my heart. You were the hardest working husband and father. Always serving others. You would grab sleep just about anywhere and anytime you finally got to sit down. Even in daylight with a full crowd around you. But once you awoke you were at it again. You had many handyman talents, and some us got to enjoy your works. You were a quiet, yet wise man. Your love of family and animals was touching. You alone help the living live better. May your skills follow you in heaven, and may you get more rest breaks.
