Shocked to hear of my old friends passing. So many wonderful memories come flooding back. Perhaps most significant however was Bill's unwavering faith in God. I was inspired and encouraged by him more times than I can count. A man of principle and integrity who loved his family without condition. RIP my friend.

So terribly sorry for your loss. We pray peace and comfort for your family through this difficult time.

I am sorry for your family's loss. My boys were involved with basketball at the HSB in the early 2000's and I remember coming across your family several times. Bill always had a cheerful disposition and you all were always so friendly to everyone. I am sure he will be missed. Again, sorry for your loss.
