We have many fond memories of "Uncle Bill" as we and our boys always called him and " Aunt Shirley". Bill traveled down with us to York to attend our younger son's baptism. We never asked him to do this, he just wanted to do it. One winter, he saved our home from flood damage when he came over to our house and spent hours in a frigid rain, working to divert the water away from our home. The only thing he asked for in return was a "strong" drink to warm him up. He also found locations for our sons to complete their Eagle Scout projects which allowed them to go on and get their Eagle Scout Awards. As I said before he will be dearly missed by us and many, many friends in the community.

We love you, Bill, and will miss you so much. You did so many wonderful things for us and our boys. You were always there to offer a helping hand.
You are with Shirley now listening to her play the organ and eating her famous shoe fly pie. Rest In Peace our dear friend.
Love, Jane and George Myers
