My heart and prayers are with you all right now. I wish I could join you all and give you HUGS and pay my respects in person. Uncle Bill meant a lot to me. I always looked up to him as my Father's only brother and someone I admired for his sense of family and his strength of character.

What salt of the earth!
A friend of his daughters' for 20 years, I was grateful to be blessed as to the honor of being a guest at Bill's farm.
Bill inspired me to gently guide my toddler as the horse whisperer he was born to be.
Walking into the barn with him, my 2 year old learned much about how to carry himself with grace to instill trust.
No words can express the gratitude of the way his life touched ours.
I will remember to stay gentle in my body, all ways. Peace and blessings to you all who loved him.

Uncle Bill was a man of God, which brings me peace. He is at peace and with his sister, now.

What a joyful man he was. May he rest in true loving peace with Jesus.

I am deeply sorry for your loss of a beautiful soul.
My only child, Kyle William Nash, Bill's grandson, and I both hope the entire family can remember the wonderful times you had with a smile versus tears
