Happy Birthday, Dad!

So, today would have marked your 73rd year of birth. You will live on forever in my ❤️. I love you and miss you every day. There is not a day that goes by that you're not thought of. Fly free! Clear Ether!

Your daughter,
Michelle

The following poem written by Bill characterizes how he lived life:

Dreams

Brave and alive are the few

who follow their dreams at any cost.

They are the true heroes --

the ones who keep this place going.

Asleep are those

who have yet to dream.

They move only to fill empty time --

ache but don't know why.

To those I urge,

"Wake up - start dreaming!"

Dead and gone are those

who have laid their dreams aside.

The deep pain of abandonment

serves as infernal memento.

To those I implore,

"Arise -- rekindle the dream!"

Feel the pain replaced by delight.

Revel again in being brave and alive.

-Bill Reeves, 1991
