Hi Dad Me and mom took the best care of u and we miss u so much. Cancer completely sucks. As i told u many times that I was sorry u were sick with this ugly disease, I was hoping for a miracle and that u would get better. I prayed every day and night that God would grant us a miracle. God had a different plan. I am a firm believer he only takes the best cause that was what u r to me and mom. At least u r not suffering anymore. I will take good care of mom and I know she will do the same for me. Thanks for everything. I know u always told me that u were proud of me and my accomplishments I was proud that u r my dad. I will always make u proud as well as mom. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of u. To the best "Cool Papa" in the world. Love and miss you. Love your daughter Kari.

I have so many good memories with “Lima Bill”, way to many to list. We took a trip to California for the races and that was a trip I could write a book about! He was a good man that was truly loved! Rest In Peace, until I see you again...#91
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My deepest condolences to Karen and the family. There was never a dull moment when Bill went to the races with Hank and I. He was always making us laugh and making our travels entertaining.. What great sense of humor and wit he had. R.I.P. Lima Bean!!

Dear Croft Family, I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. My deepest sympathy to all. Bill was truly an awesome man! I worked with him for over ten years and I could not have had a better employee. He was the “cat’s meow” ! Although we don’t know each other Bill always talk so lovingly about his family and made jokes. He make sure you knew how much he loved his family! Again my sincerest condolences to you. Respectfully submitted Deborah Morris
