Bill was my friend and mentor at the American Legion post. He taught me how a Christian man should live and was a constant source of encouragement. I will always strive to live my life more like Bill.

I am saddened by Bill’s passing and gain some comfort in knowing that he is with Cousin Gennie and both are rejoicing together in God’s glorious kingdom. He was such a kind and generous man here on earth—Heaven has gained a wonderful angel. Sympathy, prayers, and love to all of the family.
