My Brother Bill, alias "BB", my best friend and buddy. It's hard for me to put into words how great a brother Bill was to me and a friend to everyone who knew him. He was very shy, soft spoken, and as our mother would say, "Bill would give his last dollar away if asked to". We had a great childhood together, being only a year and a month apart in age. We had lots of laughs together, even a few knock-down brawls with each other at times.
It was a great loss for everyone who knew Bill on February 28, 1967. Bill paid the ultimate price with his life, for a war I still to this day do not understand "why". God bless them all. In closing I would like to say how much we all miss Bill and love him wholeheartedly, especially our Mom and brothers Bob, Ed and sister Deb. Bill also has a name sake, my son, who actually looks a little like him. The rest of our family feels as deeply as I do and hope that Bill can somehow know it.
