My heart and prayers to out to Pat, Gina, George, and everyone else who loves Uncle Bill. I have memories of Uncle Bill too numerous to count, but the ones at the forefront of my mind are conversations of comfort and perspective regarding the passing of my Mom, Linda. I found a lot of peace in those conversations, and I hope his family will soon find peace in his passing themselves.
