Aunt Jackie, 'Uncle Bill' will be greatly missed by his family and friends, but his memories will live forever in our hearts and minds! I will always have fond memories of him cracking a joke, teasing my Mom, smiling with those 'baby blues', and most of all . . . his love and passion of jitterbugging! He was well liked wherever he went and he never met a stranger! I speak for our entire family in saying that he was loved by us all and we will miss him dearly! Love you "Uncle Bill"!
