So sorry to hear of Bill's passing. I worked with Bill at Allied Signal and found him to be a quiet gentleman, capable in his career and a generally nice guy. My thoughts and healing prayers are with his family.

Dear Rosemary, Stephanie, Suzanne, and William Jr.,

Please accept my sincere sympathy for the loss of your husband and father. May you remember the good times with your husband/father, and keep them in your hearts and minds as a comfort to you at this time. Also remember the times you laughed with each other, and the little things he did that would always bring a smile to your face.

May God give you comfort during this time of loss.
