Dear Milan family, Today while searching for a funeral notice I stumbled upon this notice of your loved one, William. After reading the articles from various states concerning this one major accident I decided to also read the condolences for each and try to convey a suitable message to those involved. I am sorry you lost a valuable leader of the home and friend to many. My condolences to you. May you feel angel's wings surrounding you. Yes, words fail me here but know hearts all over are concerned for you. Here's sending up prayers to you and everyone who are touched by grief today. It may seem that it won't end but as days passes by just give your heart time and it will begin to he...al. May your loved one RiP forever.Read more
