My heart is hurting for the loss of my Uncle Bill. He was such a calming gentle spirit, a voice of reason. I am also reminded of a few of his "Billerisms" little sayings he would repeat...precious. I am left with so many memories of our days on the beach at Chuckanut with my cousins Mike & Tim. My prayers are with you all as you process this loss.
To Bob and Christine: The loss of a parent leaves a hole that can't really be filled, but memories go a long way. May you have many joyful memories to ease this sadness! Thinking of you, and sending our deepest sympathy, Jim and DJ Oakes
Bill was a gentle and wise person. He was always a calming influence in the family. After he had Alzheimer's he liked to hold hands or have his shoulders rubbed. His personality shone through, even when he couldn't remember.
