    Shayna and Joe were loved by their parents as if there were but 2 stars in the firmament. They could not have been more attentive and devoted children and remain as living and loving memorials to their mother and father of blessed memory. Shayna’s care gifted Bill with extra years. And Joe was all that a beloved son could be. Bill and Millie who were together in life are now separated not even by death. God-bless you.
    With love
