I am so very sorry to be just hearing of your loss. Though I never had the chance to spend time with my cousin, I am sure that he was a good person. My mom is still alive and well and living in Illinois. Our best to everyone.
Very sincerely,
Larry and Christy Benson

Since we met Bill and Nancy when we moved in next door 3 years ago, although it was so wonderful to meet them there was always this looming in our minds that he would be taken away from us too soon. He will always be "FARMER BILL" to me with his flowers that he would plant to decorate our porches. He will be greatly missed and I know he is in a much better place and out of all the pain and suffering he was going through. He is in a better quality of life, now, than he ever was in. God bless you, Bill, and Nancy, also. Love you both.

Although we all knew this was too soon to come, it's so sad to hear about Billy. There's too many old memories to share here but my heart goes out to Nancy and to all those close to Billy, especially Carol and Jim, Donna and Greg, and Barbara and Bruce. I wish i could be there to give whatever comfort I could provide but know that Billy is and always will be in my heart and prayers.
