Although I cannot be there in person to support my family…especially Aunt Connee and family, I Love You all So Much and only have fond memories of a kind, caring, and gentle Uncle Bill… whom I am sure would want me to have his beef jerky recipe. I LOVE YOU ALL!!
Connee – So sorry to hear about Bill. Our prayers are with you and your family. We remember all the great times at Little Creek and hope to see you in the next few months.

I AM SO LUCKY TO BE PART OF SUCH A WONDERFUL FAMILY. BOB & I ARE SO GREATFUL FOR ALL OF THE GREAT TIMES THAT WE HAVE SHARED, ESPECIALLY THE FAMILY REUNION THAT WE HAD AT OUR HOME. BILL WAS ON MY TEAM FOR BEAN BAG. THEY CAN GET PRETTY SERIOUS WITH THIS GAME. WE ATE AND DRANK A TON, AND HAD SUCH A GREAT TIME ENJOYING EACH OTHER. I WILL ALWAYS TREASURE THAT MEMORY FOREVER.
I owe everything that I am and that I have become to you Dad. Thank You. I will always Love you. Someday we will have that fishing trip we talked about. I miss miss.
I will never forget what wonderful neighbors you and Bill were to us. Bill will always be with us. I remember him as the lottery ticket man, the farmer of the entire block,a magnificent chef and loved doing it, his generosity was always abundanthelping neighbors cut grass who couldnt, housesitting, sharing his garden and things like thishe loved his grandkids and all the kids that came thru his home over the years. We will miss you Bill but you will always be in our hearts. Hopefully we can continue to give out all that same love to people that you have given out over the years. We love you Connee and it goes without saying, we are here for you always!

It was great to go online and see the happy pictures of Bill, Connee and the family. He will certainly be missed.
John and I remember Bill as a very helpful, friendly man when we attended VBUMC. Even now, as we have a church of our own, Bill remained in our heart.
My fondest memories are those of the parties I shared you and your family. In you and Bill I had a mom and dad away from home. Thank you, and I will always be just down the road for whatever you may need. Just call and we’ll be there. Love you all. Dave, Dawn and Laurel
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Our prayers are with you and your family but especially with Bill. I will continue to say my rosary nightly for Bill and all the poor souls in purgatory. I’ll bet he is having a beer with Rusty and talking and listening to Grandma Moore mostly listening, huh?. It means a lot to me that I got to talk with him after he took sick again. I will truly miss him and him calling me “sis.” Take care of yourself, Connee, you deserve only the best of life – God will take care of everything for you. We love you and your family very much. I am sorry that we could not attend the services but our prayers were certainly with you and Bill at that time. Love, Edmay & Ken.
So sorry for your loss. I know he’ll be up in heaven checking it out for when we all will meet again. God bless to all of you and your families.
Thanks Bill for all of your kindness, we shall keep you in our hearts forever.God Bless
