We had very sad news earlier this evening. Our brother-in-law, Bill passed away. We were stunned. Bill's been ill ever since I met him 4 years ago, but that doesn't seem to matter, we are still in shock.
When Gary and I decided to marry, and since my dad had passed away in 1996, I asked Bill to be my "stand-in Dad" and give me away at our wedding. When I asked him, he told Gary to behave, because he might not give me to Gary!
I loved Bill dearly. He was the best brother-in-law, always quick with a smile and loved to tease. I will miss him greatly. Love and prayers to Bill's family and to my husband, Gary, who has known Bill 42 years.
So, I decided to post this picture from our wedding in 2007. It's always been one of my favorites, but now it's even more special to me.
