One day I may die
Without saying goodbye to you
But I will never forget
To say thank you
Because you hold the
Loveliest part of my life.
"Bill was such a wonderful person who had a great sense of humor and showed kind and compassion to everyone. My heart goes out to the entire family, especially for his wife Cathy. May he Rest In Peace with God and know that he has left such an amazing imprint on all those who had the pleasure of meeting him. With love, Kaia. "
