Dear Herta, Bobby and Donna; Sending all my love to you at this difficult time. I always loved the time our families spent together and Bill and Herta were always considered like second parents. I always thought of Bill on his birthday because we shared the same August 1st birthdate. My thoughts and prayers are with you and may God ease your pain as you celebrate Bill's life.
