    I am so sorry for the loss of you father. Your dad was a big part of our family and he truly was the nicest man with a huge heart! He was the best at playing trivial pursuit and his humor was one of a kind. I will always remember his smile and how much he loved his family❤️ May God comfort you with all the memories you have had together and can share with your children and in time those memories will help to heal your broken hearts . Love you all, aunt kaykay

    So sorry for your loss. Bill was a gentle man with a quick smile. Never once lost his patience when I asked a question... and there were lots of questions. Work will not be the same without him. He will be missed by all he worked with, as well as by the patients he cared for
