We are all deeply saddened by your loss. Bill was such a kind, caring, loving man, always there to lend a hand no matter what!
We were very blessed to have both of you (& Daniel too), as neighbors & friends!
We are just down the road should you need anything, even a friend to talk to.
Sending our love and prayers, Marty & Bob Henneberry
