We are so sorry to hear of the loss of our dear friend Bill. When we lived in South Glens Falls(Moreau Lake Park) Bill was the first person we would see when we entered the Park for our stay at our second home. Bill became a second Grand parent to our Grand daughter Natalee. He painted rocks in his booth to pass the time on slow days. Natalee has a collection of rocks she will always cherish. Bill made a very special one when her pet guinea Pig Chloe passed. Bill took a picture we had of Chloe and made her a head stone. Natalee loved all the rocks Bill made for her. He will always be in her memories as well as ours. Rest in peace dear Bill. Love to Sharon and Bills family. Steve and Debbie Tucker
