    Carol, Heidi, Billy and families,
    We are so sorry for your great loss. Bill was not just a guy he was truly a guy and a half. Between his hunting, motorcycling well into his 70’s, his job, his dogs and his fantastic humor he will be missed!
    You are in our prayers, our thoughts and our hearts. Dan and Marie Kell

    Carol, Heidi, Billy, Christian, Jack and Eli ~

    So sorry for the loss of your husband, father, and grandfather. Bill was a bright light for all of you and I know he will be dearly missed.

    One thing that has always stuck in my mind about Bill is when I would say to him “It’s nice to see you”, he would respond “It’s nice to be seen”. The first time I heard him say that, it really made me pause and think how true those words are and makes you reflect on the fragility of life and how we take it for granted sometimes. Each time he said that, I was grounded in that perspective – even if for a few minutes – I truly appreciated those moments to bring me back to what really matters in life. God bless you all during this difficult time
