Bill was a wonderful person. Even when he was down he always found a smile on his face. He always had advice to give and was always the for my children Ahliya and Jabar. Even when I thought they rode the bus Bill was giving them a ride to school no matter during spring or winter. We had Thanksgiving and Christmas's together and I'd have coffee at time with him in the mornings. He was my best friend and like another dad to me and always there when no one else was. I'll always miss my friend. I love you Bill.
