I've only know Bill for a short period of 5 years. He liked working on computers and taking them apart, he was like a kid at christmas when we got him an electric screwdriver. I'll truly miss him, his generosity was next to none, we talked how he loved his kids, and about his pet crow. I got him a camera to take photos of the birds on the feeders he loved so much. Quite the guy he'll always be in my heart. Everytime, I see an Eagle fly I'll remember Bill soaring to great heights.

We will surely miss his smile and his warm welcome. We will miss his birdfeeders that he either made or purchase for the humming birds that he love to feed along with the big black bird that he love. I know the kids will miss him in the Summer because he was always fix their bikes like repairing the tires, petels, brakes and so on. I will miss the Sunday morning conversation we had together, along with other friends he made in the laundry room or just outside while he was fixing a bike. We will also miss his fresh vegtable garden each year that he shared with everybody. Now we just have fond memories to share with each other and to remember this time in one year for now.
