Bill was one of the finest persons we have ever met. His faith and kindness came through in all that he did. Our community was the richer for having had Bill in it. He was a man of deep and sincere faith who is with the Lord. We look forward to the Day when we shall see him again. Our sympathy to Jeff, Devin and Shane.
