    Steve, Sandy, and Deb, my thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time.  Your Dad always reminded me of my Grandpa Dirks who I adored!  Your parents always made me feel welcome whenever I saw them and made me feel like part of the family for which I'm grateful and will never forget.  I know Ed had a lot of respect for Uncle Bill and was devastated when he read of his passing.  Hold on to all of the wonderful memories you have of him, as they will help to keep him alive in your hearts forever!  Hugs to all of you!
