Tara and Keith
I am sorry to hear of your Dad and Grandfather's passing. He was such a nice man.

Billy, Tara and family I’m sorry for your grief at this time. I’ll be praying for God to give you comfort. I know these last couple years have been especially tough on Bill. But he is now reunited with his love Helen. I can only imagine the wonderful reunion he’s having with all the family up there. 
I always enjoyed making Bill laugh. That time I walked down the hallway and it startled him, he said “I thought you were Darlene for a second”. Then we laughed when I said “yep Darlene going to get you for that, she never had crazy-eyes”. 
I truly loved Bill and we’ll see him again, when God calls us home too.

Billy, Tara and family, Walt. Prayers that our Lord will surround you with His love and peace and strength. Bill always looked like his grandmother, strong Ross genes. . I've always loved all the Ross family. Of course my Aunt Dorothy was a Ross so we were around the Ross family a lot. Bill is with Helen, Keith, Dickie, Eddie and Jimmy and family up in heaven rejoicing together. Love to you all.
