I loved Uncle Bill very much. I appreciated his cards and loved any chance we got to see him. He was very funny and along with Aunt Bobbie, he was easily my favorite relative on my Mom’s side. He will be missed so much! I am so thankful he had Maryna.
My thoughts and prayers are with Maryna and her family. I’ll always miss my big brother, Bill. He was a good man.
I have many fond memories of my Uncle Bill. When I was a child he wasn’t a hugger, but I hugged him anyway. I think he warmed up to me over the years. We shared the love of silly cartoons Opus and Milo Bloom Co, Garfield, Calvin and Hobbes and The Far Side. I always wanted to mail him new books when they came out. Appreciate his service and sacrifice for our country. I am glad that he had Maryna by his side for many years, he always had a big smile on his face and was happy. Prayers for comfort for all the family during this time.
We have great memories of Bill. At our home, his family home & numerous family reunions & get togethers. We had Thanksgiving with his family for several years. Our prayers are with Maryna & his family here in Tennessee.
