My precious brother Bill is with our Lord in heaven. He was so supportive and an encourager to me. I loved his sense of humor, his intelligence and his love for family.
He and Sandy’s home was the place everyone gathered because we knew there was love and acceptance there. My husband loved my brother and we share a plethora of beautiful memories. I grieve for this loss to our family and friends.

I am so sorry for your family’s loss. I loved Bill and would have sooner spent time with him and my dad than just about anyone else. Bill made my dads stay at Paramount a lot more enjoyable. I was looking forward to visiting him and thanking him after this pandemic ends. The little time I had with Bill confirmed to me his love of family. ~ Neal Grove
