Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.

To Bill's family:
I am sorry to hear that you have lost Bill.
I remember Bill best as a cute little boy, with two cute sisters Barbie and Ellie. And I remember his Mom, when he was in trouble, calling him, "William Howard Rufus Cass!" (Rufus being his Dad, Howard's middle name, she put all those names together, and it had a nice ring.)
I'm sure you all have your own good memories - may they sustain you in your loss.
