Bill appreciated the best things in life... family, friends, a drink, a game of cards, hunting and fishing. And we appreciated Bill. He left us too soon. He will be missed.

Marilyn & family
Years may come [ many years are still ahead ]
Years may go [ many years have passed ]
Some go fast [ they belong to yesterday ]
Some so slow [ Still the memories last ]
Some are good [ couldn't stop the laughter ]
Some are bad [ couldn't stop the tears ]
For each one [ Thank the Lord that we have been ]
Just be glad [ Together through the years ]
Irish Rovers

Forever in our hearts.
Andy & Judy
