Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

  1. Miss you already, Bill. You were like a second dad to me growing up and through my teenage years. You were kind and generous, letting me tag along to the Strawberry cabin during the summer and even on family reunions to Michigan and Ohio. You were funny and never failed to make me and Katie laugh.

    One lesson you taught me that I’ve always carried forward was to not discount something before trying it. We were up north at a lake (Pine Knoll, I think), and Veleda was getting the cold cuts out to make sandwiches at a picnic table. You pulled out the goose liver and started snacking on it. You offered me some, and I said, “ew gross, no way.” You responded with, “have you ever had it?” And I said I hadn’t. Then you asked, “well how can you say you don’t like it if you’ve never tried it?” You had me there. I couldn’t argue that, so I thought, what the heck? I gave it a try and it was, in fact, gross. But that lesson is one I’ve carried through the past 20+ years. Not just with food, but many experiences. I’ve tried things I ended up not liking, but I’ve also gained so many experiences that I may not have had had I not heard your voice in my head pressing, “how can you say you don’t like it if you’ve never tried it?”

    Thank you for your guiding spirit. You were loved by so many more people than your family. I’ll do my best to be a support for Katie and everyone as they navigate through the unimaginable grief of losing you. I know you’ll continue to look out for them, too.

  9. Too young to leave us. Sad to learn. Also amazed to learn you lived in Gilbert and I lived in Chandler for a few years and we never connected while living in the East Valley. RIP Amigo. See you upstairs some day.
