    Jocelyn, words cannot express how much we care about you, Bryan, your beautiful babies, your mom, sister, and brother, and what you are going through. Only you and your family can share your feeling of loss and sadness at this time.
    Even though we cannot feel your pain we know you are hurting and just want you to know that we are thinking of you and will be there for you. We love you.

    To Anna and Kids, Words cannot express my sorrow and grief for your loss. Sometimes we don’t know what God could possibly have in mind for us but we have to trust that there is a reason. Bill was a wonderful, caring, talented guy and will be truly missed by so many. Our lives were enriched just by knowing him. God bless you and may God hold Bill in the palm of His hand. Love you…

    Dear Anna,

    Words cannot express how we are feeling on your loss. Even though we only knew him for a short time, we grew very fond of him and enjoyed his company every time we had the pleasure of his company. Our hearts are filled with such sorrow for your family and especiallly for you. He was such a great guy and you can just tell by being around him that he touched so many lives. Hold on to all the great times you shared with him and all the love you felt for each other. Know that your family and friends are grieving with you and grab onto the hands that are reaching out to you. We couldn’t have asked for a better father-in-law for our son. He treated Bryan very well, and for that, he will always hold a special place in our hearts. Your entire family are in our thoughts and prayers.
    With are deepest sympathy and love,

    Dennis and Terri

    My heart goes out to the entire Sears family. Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Sears I am certain he was an amazing man just from knowing his daughter Kristen. As hard as it is to loose a loved one it is important to know you are never without them. Bill lives on in his family. A wise person once told me that loves ones who have passed become guiding lights. So whenever you feel lost or like you need guidance….look up to the stars and follow your guiding light…Bill. Again my deepest condolences. Everyone ever touched by Mr. Sears is in my thoughts, heart and prayer.

    Wow! I just found out tonight…I am so sorry for your loss!! Bill was such an unselfish person – he always wanted to spend time to entertain you!! He was the kind of guy that would go out of his way just to have fun. His never ending, joyful spirit just doesn’t come around so often. I remember he used to bring my father-in-law to tears with his rendition of “American Trilogy.” So many memories – all good! Bill, you will truly be missed. I will miss singing with you.

  24. Gina Marrero on June 5th, 2011 2:04 pm

    Anne Marie and Sears family,

    Although I only met Bill a few times early in your marriage, I knew he was a great guy for you, and that he would take care of you. So sorry for your loss. Miss you!

    Love,

    Gina Marrero
