Bill was the brother I never had. Those that knew him understand what I am getting at. When he became the Sigdet Daddy 17 years ago, I never thought that I would end up with a brother and sister. When we asked them if they would like to be the god parents of our boys, they jumped at it.
Bill had the patience of a saint. He is the one that taught my wife how to drive. I guess me and sis didn't have that saintly patience. It's funny the small things you remember that are the most significant.
Stras and his other brothers that were/are there helping, you guys are the best. I hope that one day I can show my gratitude. That New Years day was the best one we ever had. We didn't say thank you then, but we are saying it now. I am not an SF Brother but you guys are my brothers now. Like it or not your stuck with us. My boys never understood why I loved being an enabler for you mugs, now they understand.
I didn't mean for this to be so sappy. I just wanted to tell y'all thanks and what Bill meant to us. I must have some Copenhagen in my eyes because I can't see very well right now.
TS thanks for getting the word out back in July.

Just got back in here tonight and this was the first thread I looked for. I think about Bill a lot these days. A mentor and a warrior. Quiet in his own way and until the end concerned more about those around him than himself. He was truly one of a kind. I have to thank Stras and Pat and the rest of the guys. Those last days and the funeral were something else. It was a one of a kind thing I have never seen anywhere else.
