Kevin, Jeff, Stacey and Families,
Julie and I were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of your father, our "Uncle Bill". During his illness you were always there with him to lessen his pain and provide the love and joy he so richly deserved. We will always remember and cherish the fun-filled family events made more special by the presence of our Uncle Bill. Look back on those happy days and share a smile in your time of grief. Our thoughts, prayers and love are with you and your families during this very difficult time.

Bill, Julie, Chris & Kirstie Kodatsky
