Uncle Bill will always hold a special place in my heart. The memories of him I hold dear much like the coins he'd given me over the years. His hugs were the best; his arms wrapped you up like a little pappoose no matter how old or big you were. My love to Aunt Rosie and the dearest of cousins. May God's love and strength surround you and keep you through this time of sorrow. ~LeAnn

Uncle Bill was a very special man. I loved how he was always laughing and joking around with a big smile on his face. I remember my brother Jack and I staying with Uncle Bill and Aunt Rosie in the summer time. My Grandpa and Grandma would take us back to Michigan. Uncle Bill would make up funny names for his grandchildren like- Julius Herman. He always made you feel at home. I am really sad that I couldn't make it to the funeral today. I am going to be at the hospital with my Mom. I love all of you and I am very sorry. I will cherish the memories forever, just wish I could have said goodbye.
