    I enjoyed my talks and the time I got to spend with Uncle Bill. He was full of fascinating stories whether they be of the of the war, or his adventures growing up as a young boy and as an adult. He always greeted me with a hug and said it is good to see you! He was always praying for me and my family and shared his love for us all. Billy, Elaine and Family, I’m sorry for your loss! Uncle Bill will be missed by all! Love you guys!
