  1. We are so very sorry to hear of your loss. We both worked with Bill at the Casino and still looked at him as part of our “extended” family. He was such a kind and caring man with a smile always on his face! I enjoyed working with him in the Gift Shop so much and always couldn’t wait for the times we worked together. Especially football Sundays so I could harass him about liking that horrible team that wears purple! I loved him so much and we will truly miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with with your family at this difficult time. Love always.

  2. To such a happy and good friend, RIP Billy, you are truly going to be missed by many.
