Marilyn, I just saw this passing in Weigel's website. My heartfelt words can't express how sorry I am for Bill's passing. Both of your friendships meant so much to me during the time I went to the Wauseon Church of the Nazarene and in working with Bill at Gendron. I know without a doubt that he is rejoicing in Jesus. God bless always, Carol (Green) Stover
