Wild Bill said goodbye to his small circle of girls early in the morning of Tuesday, December 3rd.
Our three daughters flew in as soon as they could when the kindest of hospice nurses came on duty the day before (Monday morning) and explained we only had hours left to say our goodbyes.
We will always be grateful for her advice that waiting for our long-planned family Christmas together was no longer an option.
Tickets were bought, planes were boarded...phone calls were made along the route "just in case" and to keep in contact.
I leave you with my favorite photos of the guy who changed my life so much and proved to me that life can begin after 40.
Our favorite song was "Since I Met You Baby" and I will always remember him when I hear that song.
And hear it I will because a few years ago he made me a CD of every version he could find of the song, from Ivory Joe Hunter to Jose Feliciano!
