Dear Karol and Family,
I just heard today that Bill passed away. I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ll always remember and am so grateful for the kindness that you both showed over the years to Marian Sidley, my aunt. Especially after her son John died and Aunt Marian needed help getting to doctor’s appointments. There isn’t anything that Bill and you wouldn’t do to help her. You both treated her like a second mom and of course she treated Bill like another son as well. Aunt Marian’s son John and brother Matt treated Bill like he was family too staying close friends for life.

In the days ahead may the memories of the good times you shared together bring you comfort and peace.
With sympathy and prayers,
Barbara Latini

Bill and I have been the greatest friends since he was 5 and I was 4 years old. We were neighbors in East Cleveland. Bill and I remained close for all these years up until recently, just before he died. Good by ole' buddy, see you in heaven, your friend and life long brother... Ed
