    Carolyn and Family
    So sorry to hear of the loss of your Dad. We had heard he had a stroke but nothing more until now. The loss of a parent is always difficult and we will keep you in our thought and prayers through this time.

    Bill was my Sunday School teacher way back in the day. He was always a caring man and very passionate about his involvement with the church. He always greeted you with a big smile when you saw him. He will be missed by many.

    What a great neighbor and fellow church member Bill was! He was extra kind to my mom Ruth and Unc Elmer in their later days. Praying much peace for you all as you grieve. Kayleen
