Another Saint in Heaven



I am a little teary-eyed sitting at the computer tonight, but I really wanted to post this slide show as a small tribute to my uncle and the great man he was. We lost Bill Read, my mom's brother, this afternoon to a LONG bout with kidney cancer. Like I said in my earlier post, we all knew that his passing was eminent, but that still does not make losing him easier. He is truly in a better place now...looking down from Heaven. To say he will be missed is really not enough--our lives won't be the same without him. I wish I had some pictures at my house from when I was a little girl when we would set off to "Texas" on one of his horses, or lying on the floor discussing various details of high school life :) But I hope you can get an idea of how great of a man he was, and join me in saying a little prayer for his wife, children, grandchildren, and parents. Life if too short not to say I LOVE YOU!!

Shelley, I am so sad to hear the sad news about Bill. He was such a very special person and will certainly be missed by all who knew him. I think the last time I saw him was at your Tech graduation party. Beautiful memories are a comfort. Love, Don and Sandra Dyson

Shelley, this is a beautiful slide presentation. Thank you for putting this special piece together. Your Uncle Bill loved you and Jeff and he would have loved to play with Preston as he grew up. Again, thanks!
Love You!
