Alice, Bill was one of a kind. I remember him coming into Grandma's restaurant and catching heck for drinking so much Pepsi. He had that cute smile and twinkle in his eye and would humor Grandma. I know the pain is unbearable now. Hold tight to your memories and know that God has gained another angel. My love, prayers and God's blessings are with you and your entire family at this very difficult time.
