You were the first to be with mom in life. You now are the first to hug her in the afterlife.
Rest in Peace Brother!
John Werner and husband Richard Runnells
P.S. I will always remember the family picnics at Willow Mill Park


RIP Sir!


RIP My Friend. Thank You for sharing a laugh or two at ball field or the gym, where’re ever our sons brought us together to tell our stories




I appreciated Bill's loyalty and friendship that he showed to those who knew him. He loved and cared about his family and friends and knew they loved him which, in the end, is all that matters.


I never met you. I am Veronica Pagan’s aunt, Cruz. I know if I had, I would have enjoyed your company. I would have asked you about your service in the military and about your favorite sport. I now want to say Thank You. Thank you for your service. Thank you for being a loving father and grandfather. I wish I had met you, Sir. Rest in peace.
