Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. We are very sad for your loss. We will miss one of our biggest fans, always supporting us and being at our games to cheer us on. Know that we are here for you.
“I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love
leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love.” – Leo Buscaglia
Be with you all in thought and prayer on friday and saturday. God Bless.
With sincere sympathy and support- Amy Gilles
We are so deeply sorry for your loss. While the majority of us never had the opportunity to meet Bill personally, we do feel as if we knew him through his son, Bill, who spoke of him often. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers at this time. We will pray for that time to come when all of your fond memories bring back the smiles and laughter to each of you.
