A very good man has left us for Heavens Gate. You are part of some of my happiest childhood memories. Always a smile for me, laughter at all my serious dance moves and food always ready for my little aching belly. I have always held you so high. A strong, joyful, Christian man that always held out a helping hand. I am sorry, I never told you exactly what you meant to me. I thought we would have more time. Until we meet again, Uncle Bill, your smile and joyous laughter will always be with me.
"A limb has fallen from the family tree that says, Grieve not for me, remember the best times, the laughter, the song, the good life I lived while I was strong.
All my love-Shahara
