Bill was a fine man. He did much to help my family when we needed it the most. He may be gone, but certainly not forgotten.

Cheryl and Katie and family, I am sorry for the loss of your father and grandfather . I only knew him as the nice guy that recorded the combined bell choir at your church. We were so happy to be able to listen to our music and I sure do appreciate him for doing that. I wish you peace at this sad time.

Bill was a special person and will be missed very much. You are being remembered in my prayers, Lee, Cheryl and Marty. Nothing can take the pain away. But maybe it will be encouraging to you to know that Bill touched and enriched so many people's lives during his life.
