  1. Bill, I know you have taken such care to be a caring and nurturing son during these difficult years. Your mom felt your dedication and love, I am sure. Rest in knowing her spirit lives on through you and the people you continue to touch. We are thinking of you at this sad time. ((Hugs)).

  3. Love you Laura and Bill❤
    You are so wonderful and special for taking such loving care of your Mom Ann. Sending Prayers. Grateful you have each other.

  4. Bill,
    I think that the loss of one’s mother is by far the saddest event of anyone’s lifetime. There is just no other loss that measures up to this one. But knowing your mom, from what you’ve told me, I don’t believe that she would want us sitting around grieving but rather celebrating the wonderful life she led. I’m sure she had few regrets in living the full and successful life that she did.

    In Sympathy,

    Jose Luis
