We want to extend our most heartfelt condolences. I remember Bill frequently visiting Menard’s when we lived next door on Greentree Drive, and our son Matt calling him “Pappy” just like Michelle and Matt did. He also befriended my father, Joe, at Beacon House which my dad truly appreciated. Our prayers are with your family during this difficult time.
