Reply Vicki Lynne Shiflett Lilly says: November 7, 2012 When I was a little girl, Bill (and Mary) were like second parents to me and their family a second family to me. I had so many experiences camping, car/RV shopping, dinners and other experiences that I would have have had with Bill (them). I admire his love for Mary and taking on 3 daughters who he loved completely. He could fix anything. My heart and mind are full of wonderful thoughts and memories that are extremely hard to articulate at this time. Bill…. will always be remembered… no doubt Reply Leave A Condolence Cancel reply Choose a Candle Choose a Candle Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
