Our deepest condolences for you, Carol, Erica, Brandon and Justin
I will always remember Bill for his quirkiness and his uniqueness. Erica, my sister, our playdates together growing up and when he made us the “Special Pizza” with the wieners and cheese slices! He seemed so proud of it. He was a good man. Cherish the good memories and embrace the happy times you all spent with Bill.
