I'm so sorry for your loss. My deepest sympathies to Aunt Richy, Billy, Michelle and Brooke. I have the best memories of Uncle Bill. He always made us kids feel so special and loved. Whether giving us rides in his big rig, going camping, or just hanging out at family gatherings, he made sure the kids were always included. The same could be said for my own kids. I was lucky to have him as my uncle! Although we all miss you here on earth, I know you are pain free and happy in heaven. I love you Uncle Bill.
