For an uncle, caring, encouraging and never harsh. Bill had a wonderful ever present state of humour, full of laughter; with an occasional 'ahoy'. He found the best in the little joys of life. A fond farewell, until we meet again. In the eternal bliss beyond this life, reunited with loved ones.

You know what? I can't remember even one time, seeing Uncle Bill mad. That's really cool. Rest well Uncle.
