Always enjoyed listening to Bill’s stories of his family and his life. You could tell the love that he had for Mary, his children, and grandchildren. We are grateful to be a part of his life for too short a time. We are thankful for his beautiful daughter, Wendy, which he shared with our son James.

We will always keep Bill in our hearts and prayers and pray that his family finds peace and comfort among each other in this difficult time.

Peace & Love,

Bob & Cindy Karnia

Susan and Bill, my condolences. When I heard the first thing I thought of was the movie The Burbs. Your dad must have paid for that movie a dozen times over in late fees to Blockbuster! Your family is in my prayers.
