  1. Dad, you will truly be missed, both in my heart and in the minds of my Family. As your eldest son, sorry I wasn’t home more often but know I love you very much. I will cherish ALL the memorable moments including the ones that need your help to understand life’s curves.

    I will miss the memorabila you often give representing the Air Force knowing I’m Army and how I will now watch the Army vs Air Force football games without us bragging who won.

    There will be many things I will want us to talk about, even miss you calling my wife and kids, but now, will need to learn how through my prayers to continue to communicate to you.

  2. Our Condolences to the Williams family from the Abbott family.
