    Aunt Bobbie, MaryAnn, Harry, Claudia and John,

    I was so sorry to learn that Bill has passed away. I will always remember the little blond haired young boy who loved popping popcorn in our fireplace at the lake. Then my mom would throw the popcorn for him to catch by mouth. This always made my dad laugh. Bill is gone but the memories of our time with him will always be with us. I love you all.

    What a great guy. I used to love to talk to him about his times playing the drums for his band "Jeff and the Atlantics". Very sad that he's gone.
