    Daddy, I will miss your steady, solid, optimistic presence. These last few years with you were a blessing. I couldn’t love you this much if you had not first loved us kids so well.

    Bill was always such a delight at the Wojtkowski family functions…he liked his coffee and soda for sure. And no matter what, he aways had a smile on his face. Such a gentle and kind soul he was. My prayers go out to you Aunt Ginny and all your siblings. I love you and am thinking of you during this difficult time.
