Bill, my brother, you left us way too soon, but God must have needed a great guitar player up in Heaven! I will miss our conversations. I still think oh, I’ll call Bill this morning, then I remember. I will miss you sending videos of you feeding squirrels and chipmunks! They made me laugh so hard! I will see you later, and we can play music with Mom! Love you and I will miss you terribly.

Gone too soon, brother! I will miss you so much. Always enjoyed talking with you and receiving your silly critter video's. Your generosity and thoughtfulness was always appreciated and I'll never forget the laughs we shared and our long conversations. You rest easy now and I'll be listening for your guitar strumming in the wind. I know you're gonna be jammin' up there with mom and the best guitar players there ever was. Reply to this comment

I will never forget you, Bill. You were the best music partner, mentor, and friend a person could have. When I get to Heaven, we can laugh about our mechanical drummer and bass player. God bless all his family and friends. Reply to this comment
