We grew up with only 6 of us cousins for a long time. We were together more than living apart. Every holiday and every birthday and about every Sunday we were together. We all even went to the same school and 4 odds rode the same school bus. Summertime we camped together. Riding bikes and swimming was the best things. At night after the campfire and marshmallows we would go sleep in either the boy tent or the girl tent. Afraid we grew apart as we got older but saw each other whenever possible. Those were such good times and looking back, it was the best of times. Bill will be greatly missed. Uncle Russel and Aunt Dot have their little boy back with them.

Bill is my cousin whom I had not seen for quite a few years. I do remember him as a child/teenager. He was always stirring up some kind of fun - you knew when he was in the room! He and his Dad, my Uncle Russell, were square dancing kings. My siblings and I loved visiting Aunt Dot and Uncle Russell and going to the dances with them and Bill's siblings Anita and Roger. I imagine Bill was just as feisty as an adult as he was when younger. My condolences to the family and all who knew and loved Bill. Family awaits him at the gates of Heaven. Rest easy, Bill.

The. Collett has always been very close to me. I have a lot of fond memories playing with Roger , Bill and Anita. I cheered with Anita and watched Bill for years playing basketball. Dot and Russ were like second parents. RIP sweet Billy, we shall all be together in heaven.
