My Dear Friend Bill, I will always remember you having my back through thick and through thin. We shared so much and had so much in common but the most important thing we shared is our love of the Lord and His word. I will leave you with one of our favorite scriptures, "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go". Joshua 1:9. I love you and miss you. Rest in perfect peace, my buddy, my friend.

To my father, the laughter and his voice impressions is the one of many things I will miss about my father. As well as his amazing cooking tips, which we shared and had a great passion for cooking. He will always stay close in my heart, right next to my lovely grandma,and daddys mom. Rest in peace. You are now with our Amazing Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

My brother. As I grew older It became harder for me to let people reach me. You never stopped trying and I will always love you for that and for the unconditional love you have for everyone. The hurt I feel let’s me know how much you are loved. Rest In Peace ❤️

To my beloved brother Bill. I miss you more than words can express. But I have memories that we shared that will last a lifetime.. You were an inspiration to me..always lifting us all up and encouraging us to reach for higher goals. Your sense of humor was unmatched..we laughed until we cried with your stories and jokes. These and so many many other memories bring a smile. We shared many prayers together for your health but God saw that it was time and called you home. So rest dear brother until we all meet together in God's Kingdom.
Your loving sister,
Benay (Naynay)

I can’t believe you are gone my Love. I was 14 and you were 16 when we met and fell in love. Being so young we somehow drifted apart. You were my first kiss, my first love and you will always remain in my heart. 57 years of a lasting friendship , through laughter and tears. I know your health suffered so much my love but you are now peaceful and in the arms of our Lord. RIP and remember that in heaven, I too will join you again someday. ❤️❤️
