    Bill was my big brother, my protector, my hero, my loving friend. I will miss him terribly, but I know he is no longer suffering with his Parkinson’s Disease. I am hoping he is with our mom and dad and in a tense game of Bridge, Spite and Malice, Russian Bank or Crazy Eights with them!
    If I haven’t said it enough, my heart goes out to the love of Bill’s life, his husband, Bruce. I thank you for taking such great care of my brother during his final years, months and days. I am so sorry for your loss and mourn with you.
