  1. Have many sweet memories of my cousin Bill starting when I was just a little girl and he was this very tall man in uniform. I remember the beautiful wedding ceremony in Cincinnati when he and Mary were wed. I am especially grateful for Bill and Mary’s kindnesses to Mother. She enjoyed her trip to Europe with them so much. Bill was a super Dad and a very good man with a great sense of humor. He will be greatly missed.

  2. My deepest sympathy on the loss of your father (and husband of Mary ). He was loved by many. I will always remember him as the kind & generous man he was.
