We have many wonderful memories of Bill. We loved his poetic Christmas Cards and we have every one we received. As a matter of fact, if he missed us at Christmas, we would call and complain. Bill will be missed and we pray to the Lord for a peaceful rest from his labors. The peace of Christ be with his family.
