Bill was one of those rare men, no one could ever say a harsh word against him. His love for Bobbie, God,and church was unwavering. Time with friends brought him great joy. I will remember days at the beach, and his terrific sense of humor. We'll miss you Billy, but Heaven will never be the same !

To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.
