    I am sorry to see the passing of Lion Bill. His intense dedication to public service through Lions Club was an example to all Lions of living our motto “We Serve.” To Bill and Dorothy I thank you for the training by example you gave as I followed the route after you to District Governor.

    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there; I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am the sun on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awake in the morning’s hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there; I did not die.
    Mary Frye

    I love you Uncle Bill and will miss you always.

    Uncle Bill, you will always be part of my every Christmas and Thanksgiving memory and many vacation and other favorite times. We shared a love of clothes and the beach.:)

    You were always kind and always reached out to people. You served your country, your family, your church, the Lions and, as their best employee, the U.S. post office. All of those night shifts – how did you do it!

    You personally sent cards for every occasion to let us know we were remembered. We will continue to remember and love you, always.

    Dot, I am so sorry to hear this news. Bill was always the life of the Dykes Family Reunions. Everyone looked forward to hearing more about his family tree project. He loved to learn more about the family roots and future. He will be missed. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love and Hugs from the Northern Cousins. Bill will always be part of the Family Reunions.

    I just this evening learned that Bill passed away nearly two weeks ago. I am greatly saddened to learn of his passing. While I have not seen him for many years, I have fond memories of working with him through our associations with Lions Clubs. He was person of quiet but firm optimism and quick wit; a leader who led by example. My sincere, though belated, condolences to Dorothy and to his family and friends.
