|Let the memory of William be with us forever|
"It wasn't easy pulling ourselves away, I hate that feeling that I'm leaving you there alone. I love and miss you everyday Dad. Someday I will see you again."
"Today marks the day that you passed away 4 years ago. My heart aches just as much now as it did then. We went to the cemetery today and brought some beautiful flowers. We sat and had a little conversation with you, giving you all the latest news...hopefully you could hear us. The sun was shining, gentle breeze and the birds were chirping. The tears were plentiful. To be continued....."
"God Dad I miss you so much. Wish I could share so many stories with you about my kids. I know you would just crack up over the many stories I would love to share with you. Hopefully you are watching your little angels from heaven and they are putting a smile on your face. I will never ever forget you dad. Kisses and hugs from us to you in heaven."
"I remember another year @ Thanksgiving. There was this family w/ a new baby. Very little money. They hung blankets in their doorways to save heat. Not much for groceries in the house and definately not having a Thanksgiving Dinner. He went and bought them a Turkey w/ all the fixings plus groceries to last them for a while. I'm proud to call him my DAD!"
"Tina, I was with him the year he did that. I used to babysit for the family. I still am in contact with the mother. She told me that she's never forgotten that Christmas and that for every Christmas after that she's paid it forward!"
"I am a very lucky person to have had such a wonderful man as a father. He taught his children by example.One of my favorite memories of my father was the year he became santa for a very poor family who was not going to have a christmas. He dressed up as santa and delivered presents to their door. He said christmas is not about getting but about giving, a wonderful life lesson."
"Bill, I miss you more and more everyday. You were my husband & my best friend. I love you with my heart and soul. I couldn't thank you more for bringing Mary & I into your life and making us all one big family. There were happy times and there were sad times but our love weathered the storm. You'll be forever loved and missed."
"Dad, Growing up we often think our parents are "weird" or "don't know what they're talking about". Now as an adult I have fond memories of that "weirdness" and know that it was only your way of showing your love and creating a special bond between us. I realize that the things we thought you knew nothing about were from many years of experience. You're my hero & I love & miss you so much."
Have a suggestion for us?
