Memories & Candles
I Miss you so much. I miss the jokes about when you were a kid and your laughing and I wish you would come back so much. People talk about your death randomly during school and it makes me want to cry. Sometimes I do. I miss you a lot and i wish you would come back. Love, Zoe.

To the O'Brien Family and friends, My heart and soul sympathizes with you. I can see that William was a very special man, teacher, loved by so many! I can see he "lived" a caring and unselfish life, caring so much for others and having such a wonderful sense of humor! God blesses us with each person! Each "one" is special in their own way, the way God made them to be! I can see that William used his gifts

I met Bill in 1984, and was friends with him until after his time in the military. Once he decided to go to college and get married we lost track of each other, but he is someone that I always rembebered fondly. A great guy, with a great sense of humor, and a great smile. Truly a good dude who when I think about will always bring a smile to my face.

Bill and I worked together for three years at Roslyn School. Bill taught third, fifth and sixth grade and I was the principal during this time. Since we worked together I got to know Bill and his teaching style well. Not only did Bill have a great sense of humor but he had the greatest laugh. You could not help but also crack up since Bill's laugh was infectious. The students enjoyed learning in his classroom. As a teacher, Bill
