    Cheryl, and the family of Bill,
    I am very sad to hear of Bills passing, and his struggles the remaining days of his life. I will always remember Bill as a wonderful father and husband. I will never forget our visits to you when the kids were very young and I was very happy to see you all at Ryan’s wedding. The love in your family is very special and he obviously was very much in love with you Cheryl. I know he has moved on, but he will always be in your heart and your life together is a gift that very few people get to experience. May you all remember the good times, and the wonderful times you all shared I feel very blessed to have known him. …Love Bev ( Neal) Marchetti.

  27. Ana on March 12th, 2014 10:28 am

    I am so sorry for your loss. Although, I do not know your family personally, I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. May these words give you a new hope.

  28. Carolyn and Dan Webster on March 13th, 2014 6:59 pm

    Cheryl and family Dan and I are so sorry for your loss. Please know you and your family are in our prayers. You and Bill have always been so kind to us. We will always remember all the good times we have shared. Dan and Carolyn Webster

  29. Mike and Sheri Wilson on March 13th, 2014 8:16 pm

    We planted trees and wanted them to hurry and grow. As we got older we wished they would slow. We raised up our kids and taught them every game, if we didn’t do it together it wouldn’t have been the same. We sat in the stadium and jammed to ZZ and AC. We watched the sun come up just you and me. We all liked the Steelers but nobody better than Bill. When they would score a touchdown we’d hit the dog for a thrill. We’ll miss you “Little Yank”.

  30. Mark & Deby on March 14th, 2014 11:13 pm

    Words cannot express how much Bill will be missed. We are honored to have him in our lives for the short time we did. We are all blessed that we knew him. Let us remember that. Rest in peace, dear Bill.
