He not only became a good friend but a teacher who showed great wisdom & compassion, just like Dianne. I will never forget you Bill and thank you for all you've done for us. Dianne, Billy,Chris, Michelle & family,our hearts ache for you all and have been praying for the wisdom, comfort, and strength needed at this difficult time. We love you.
