The world has lost a great, kind, generous man. I hope he taught Nancy how to make his famous fudge and apple cakes because family get togethers will never be the same without his wonderful desserts. You could tell he cooked with nothing but love . We will truly miss Bill and his kind and sweet heart. Prayers for Aunt Nancy that she will have peace.
