I was the Daughter that my uncle bill never had, Uncle Bill would tell me this every time I seen him. He would always smile and hold his arms out to me and he would always give the best hugs. I just found out that MY UNCLE John William Edwards (Bill) has passed away and NO one even bothered to contact my mother , his sister Vickie Darlene Crabb Meneely. He always wanted to be burried never cremated . Those were his wishes in writing Janice and Raymond you should be ashamed of your selves. The least you could have done was follow his wishes. But, I know he is resting high in heaven with Jonny and my son Jonathan who I named after my Uncle .
