Bill was a very kind and humble man. He showed such concern and love for his wife as she developed dementia. He was a faithful and devoted husband. On June 23 I received a note from him in very shaky handwriting stating they were doing okay considering the circumstances. I was blessed by his taking effort to write me and give me a nice compliment as well.
