Farewell

Today I heard a good man died
I counted him a friend
The news it caught me by surprise
he fought until the end

Bill had a way to make you smile
he often touched our hearts
His time was always ours to share
we knew that from the start

So many times he found a way
to help us understand
That laughter changes everything
and days are not so bland

So long my good and faithful friend
I'll see you in a while
You'll live on in my memories
I wont forget your smile
