I hope the family is able to read these posts knowing that our words are love for them also.


Mike, I agree.    

Aside from my personal memories, the first one that popped into mind is really my daughter's.  Bill and Shiloh knew the Bucks County Paramedic who passed away and they met at the funeral home.  Bill said he felt a tug, turned around, looked down and asked if he could help her.   After they put together the real names with my nickname, they chatted. She'd told me what a nice and gracious man he was.   Every time since, he always thought to ask how my “ridiculously beautiful daughter” was doing or asked about her by name.  That one meeting was enough for her to realize we lost a good man and ask me to pass on her condolences, as Robin and MaryJane/Sidekick have done also.

Ed and I await instructions for tomorrow.

Mike, the following is a quote from Bill's sister, Wendy, on FaceBook:

"Hello everyone, I am Bill's sister. I just want to thank all of you for your kind words and thoughts. Bill loved being a part of the Warrior's and going to greet the soldiers when they came home - especially when it was our soldier - Bill's son. I would love to hear stories, memories that you all have of him if you could post the memories, thoughts as you remember them. He will be forever in my heart and thank you all for being a part of his life. Wendy Detky"

Wendy knows... Bill's family knows!

An American Soldier is someone who, at some point in their life, wrote out a check, payable"to the United States of America" for the sum total of up to and including my life." We as citizens of those same United States owe them no less than unconditional support.
