“Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight, Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. And you, my father, there on the sad height, Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray. Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light” -- Dylan Thomas. These words will forever be etched in our hearts and minds as we remember Bill. He was a loving, caring husband; father, brother, uncle and friend. He was and will always be loved by us all and will truly be missed. We love you!
