I took care of Bill for a while, when he was at home. He was good to me and I thought the world of him, May you rest in peace papa Bill... Love always, Tammy

I will always remember Bill coming in the Missing Link with a smile on his face. Always had kind words for all. He was a dear friend to my sister when she was at Brantwood and made her stay more pleasant. Bill lived a hard live but he had a polite pleasant manor that carried him through all the trials of his life. I will keep his family in my prayer I know he will be missed.
