  • Jacqueline McGee Sending all my love to my dear Uncle up in Heaven. He is greatly missed and will forever exist in my heart with the many memories that we have shared over the years - from playing "Sorry" to visits in Florida and his infectious laugh. We love you, Uncle Bill!
  • Julie McGee My favorite brother (well my only brother!) Bill. We basically were twins, growing up together, partners in crime, counting and trading candy on holidays, and surviving big brother terrorizing me in our younger years, but also my biggest protector. We continued to be close our entire lives. We were always there for each other. I love you and will miss you more than you will ever know. I’m jealous you get to be with Mom🌴☀️💗
