Uncle Bill, Wow you're gone. I'm not going to say you shouldn't have left me anymore. I'm going to say you're with my Aunt Ellen again at home.  I'm forever grateful for you and your role in my life. You were my friend my Uncle and my father figure for all these years. I'm so grateful for how much you loved me, flaws and all. You were my rock my father figure. I'll have to say that everyone knew you in every little town around. You were respected by all. You were a lot to many but to me you were more than anyone knew. I'd call you and you never said no to me and everyone who knew or knows me knows how much I loved you how much of my heart was with you. They know it was always about my Uncle Bill. Now I guess everyone will tell me that you are in a better place, but for some reason I am going to say that is hard to accept. Hard to hear and hard to feel. Saying my final goodbye will have to be on my terms and right now I'm not ready. You know it's going to be my way. I'm going to say until we meet again on the other side. I'm not ready to say goodbye. So like we always said on my way out the door Uncle Bill I love you forever and always, He'd say you to. And I'll close the door saying until I see you again stay out of trouble and that always makes him laugh. It was me he had to come rescue ??. I'll see you on the other side will have to do. For now. May God Handle you with gentle hands. Until we meet again. Sandra Frisbie
