Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Les, Vicki and Lisa,
I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Bill's passing. I'll always remember him as having such a kind spirit (and the fact that he and Dad looked so much alike). He was certainly a proud father and grandfather. Take solace knowing that he and your mom are watching over you. Jayne

Always loved having Bill come into Penn Station. He (and Ruth) were always so kind and just the most amazing people. He will truly be missed.

Always enjoyed talking to Bill about our family history. Bill was very instrumental in allowing me to get in contact with our German relatives. Bill will be missed by family on both sides of the Atlantic!
