    Veda and Kim, May you find comfort in knowing your Husband and Dad sure changed our facility. He loved everyone and gave us a reason to smile. The birds and squirrels will sure miss their treats. Bill is now at peace and I am sure keeping the pearly gates in laughter with jokes and kindness. Not to mention he is watching us all with his keen eyes. Love and peace to you both and family. Kim Happy Birthday on the 29th!
