Alberta and Family:

Bill’s passing marks the end of an era. Joe Ducci, Bob Levenson, Kermit Trenton and my dad and many others have all gone before him. These men cast such a large impact on the world it is hard to imagine all of the good they have done.

Through the goodness of Bill’s heart, his love of family and community and for the work he did for the less fortunate, God has prepared for him a special place in heaven. His example will serve as a beacon for those who wish to do good.

Bill will forever be in my prayers.

Alberta and Family:

We express to you and your family our prayers in honor of Bill. In the period of time which we have known him, you, and your family, we have shared memorable and confortable times. Bill welcomed us to his professional family and we were very comfortable with your social family.

We will miss Bill, and offer our sympathy. Alberta, instead of “two” being yor limit, “three” will be the new number, as we shall toast to Bill on social occasions. Again, we offer our prayers and sympathy. God bless!

Dear Alberta, Deb, Phyllis, and Marty,

Our prayers are with you all at this time of Bill’s passing. Bill’s generous smile and warm hospitality was always felt when we visited both Bill and Alberta especially on our last visit when we discussed Alaska. I have thought of him often while in Juneau. God’s grace be with you.

I am sorry I will not have a chance to say good bye to Bill. The last time I visited him he said ” I love Alberta more now than I did the day I married her”.

I am deeply sorry for your loss.

I am sorry to hear about your father’s passing. Knowing he was a good man should help you through the next few days. I think I still have the ball he gave out when we were “over in Ohio for a month”! God Bless you and your family and may you receive the graces to help you through.
