Marchini Family:
I was sad to learn of Bill's passing. There sure were some great memories made over the years and back in the Kelly Hotel Days. Unfortunately my 2 jobs will keep me from expressing my sympathy in person but please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. The Lord will see you through these difficult days and just having family and friends around you talking and remembering should help to ease your pain. Bill certainly will be missed.
