I have many, many memories that I could share. However the most recent memory will always hold a place in my heart.
The last time Bill went to visit his Uncle Fred , he leaned over him and said " Remember the time we went fishing by the railroad track and I told you that you were like a big brother , like a father to me , and my best friend. You replied "yep" and we continued walking in silence.
I can only imagine what pleasant dreams Fred must have had that night.
Rest in Peace Bill
