Bill was great! Always really enjoyed his wit and negotiating abilities. The "Mr Bill" conversations in Detroit were always entertaining! Best of luck to all family members.

Glad we got a chance to spend time with "Gramps" these past summers here in Michigan. We all have many fond memories of time spent together over holidays, especially Christmas, in Grosse Pointe. Please watch over our families both extended and near to you. We love you Gramps Tell Grandma Bunny and Uncle Billy we love them and miss them too

Family, Michigan, MI

My sincerest condolences go out to your family, it's never easy losing someone in death. May you take comfort in God's promise found at Revelation 21:4, which says "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” This verse brought me peace when I experienced loss, I hope it can do the same for you. May the memories you have give you strength during this difficult time.
