So sad to hear of Bill's passing. I can still see him on the basketball court long-legged running for the win, with Teri cheerleading on the side. I never heard a word spoken against him. Maybe not so known down here, but Home he is and greeted by the King of the Universe who takes great pleasure in the arrival of a man who loved his family and community. He always took time to approach and talk with me at the Class Reunions. He will be missed, but he left a legacy for us to strive for.

I'm sorry for the loss. Bill was a man that I had the privilege of not only spending time with but he was also my brother in Christ. I will miss seeing him at church and miss all that he helped do for the church. But it is a comfort to know that he is Christ's embrace and we will see him again.
