Dear Debbie, Joe Dan, Weston, Reese & Families: We grieve the loss of Bill - husband, father, friend, co-worker. But we don't grieve as those who have no hope. We have the hope that we will meet again in heaven (1 Thessalonins 4:13-18). May God surround you with His comfort and Love always. Dennis & Linda & David & Samuel (Sammy Joe)Carlsen
