William J. Meyers
| ( )
You have made more people smile and laugh
than anyone else i know,
except maybe Red Buttons.
Any man, woman or child lucky enough to know you.
William J. you are loved by your children,
by grandchildren and especially by your Dorothy
Your time together has been filled
with joy and passion, friendship,
laughter and most of all love.
One of the most important lessons
you have taught us all
is the power of a smile
greater than any material object.
However, you have also taught us
that a stop at the thrift shop
is usually worth the time and effort,
You are a modern day Santa Claus.
Shopping, shopping, NEVER! EVER!
looking for yourself.
Purses, glasses, watches, odds and ends,
telescopes, telephones - you name it.
ANYTHING ON SALE.
The daily negotiations of LIFE.
With great humor and compassion
you aquire and disperse
knowledge, food and an assortment of paraphanilia
to all you know and love.
Even strangers you encounter
soon know and admire WILLIAM J.MEYERS.
"A man with great humor" and "a zest for life."
all good things have their moment...
You have provided the most remarkable moments
for all of us...time and again...
Rome, Alaska, Paris, Hong Kong, Laguna Beach,
New Orleans, Miami Beach, Puerto Rico, Hawaii...
So many magical times in Paw Paw
Fishing on the pier, rowing the boat
to the quiet little lake
watching the family of heron
glide across the horizon
the smells of the farms
maple lake --just past the waterfall--
La Cantina...over a half century of:
pizza, salad, pasta, ribs, ministrone,
and chianti with an extra glace of ice.
The history of family, friends and relatives
How many lives have you touched?
With your big smile and generous spirit
you have lit the path
and will stay in our hearts forever.
