He was a dear friend to my family. He always made the comment of what a great job I was doing with the boys and being faithful keeping them in church. I always told him it was God through me. He loved everyone and always took up that little extra time with all the children. Mr. Bill we love you and will miss you greatly! May the grace of God be sufficient to help the family through this difficult time.
