    Dear Sherry,
    I’m very sorry to hear you lost your Mom and Brother. I read about it in the Daily Press online. I know how hard losing a close family member can be – just remember that each day that passes makes things a little bit easier.

    God Bless.

    I remember Bill from the days when I lived in Escanaba as someone full of love and passion for music. He was a person who seemed full of love for everyone. I’m sure he will be missed by all who’s paths crossed his. I hope that the services last Saturday were a celebration of his life and spirit and will mark the beginning of healing for all.

    Steve, Yolanda, Sherry, Scott and Family,

    At a time like this, there is a sorrow for which no heart could ever be prepared. I wish that I could reach out to each of you and help take your tears and sadness away and ease the pain. God did promise, “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” John 14:3 I hope that you may find peace in this scripture stating that your loved one lives on and will love you forever with the Lord. I truly believe Bill is now with the our Angel Carol and I’ll bet he’s singing loud in the heavens playing the guitar like he never played before. His work here on earth has ended but I hope you will continue to keep his memory going by telling all the stories “of” him. I hope you share these many memories with beautiful little Macie, telling her all about her Uncle Bill as she is growing up.

    Steve, you are in my thoughts and prayers along with the rest of this vibrant family. You and Carol were a great part of my life for many years. God bless you for being so good to everyone!

    Sherry, Bill was a great person! Everytime you would see him, he would put a smile on your face! He sure could cheer a person up. I will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Bill was an old friend … He was a roommate of mine for many years, and we went on many adventures together…. We used to play guitar for hours…It has been a couple of years since I have seen Bill, and it is hard to believe that he is no longer with us…It saddens me, I know I could have altered this outcome….Unfortunately in life you lose track of people, whom you should have stayed in contact with… I was just thinking about him the other day… Now all I have been doing is remembering the past, and his crazy, and I will admit, sometimes annoying behavior..unique to Bill….I will jam out for you Bill.!!!love J

    A friend is someone who lets you have the total freedom to be yourself…you’ve placed many smiles upon my face, a few odd looks, and a frown. In a moment you have made me remember them all…I love you Bill…I will always love ya… Thanks for being my friend.

    For Sherry,

    A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape…but a woman of strength kneels in prayer to keep her soul in shape. A strong woman isn’t afraid of anything…but a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of her fear. A strong woman won’t let anything get the best of her…but a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone. A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future…but a woman of strength realizes life’s mistakes can also be God’s blessings and capitalizes on them. A strong woman walks sure footedly…but a woman of strength knows God will catch her when she falls. A strong woman wears the look of confidence on her face…but a woman of strength wears grace. A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey…but a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will beccome strong.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    We will miss you Bill. We will never forget you. We love you and will keep you in our hearts forever.

    We had a mutual love of music, and on several occasions, had good lengthy discussions about the music world. I always looked forward to our talks together. I always felt good after an encounter with Bill. On this day, I will look back with a feeling of warmth. My prayers are with you Bill, with your family, and the many friends you touched.

    Those who leave before us, have no worldly grief to bear, when the gates of Heaven open, all your pain is ended there. So shed no tears for those who’ve gone, for they are home at last, but cry for us now left behind, remembering the past. For we know our friend is free to laugh, to play, to sing, and dance, and if we asked him to return, he would not want the chance. Except perhaps to comfort us and tell us not to cry, and let us know a greater life is on the other side. But in a world that moves so quickly, sometimes it’s hard to just stand still, and listen to the silence, and say good bye until.
