Bill was one of the kindest, sweetest people I have ever known. He lived at Covenant Woods where my mother and our family had the privilege of getting to know him. Bill was a very special person and we will miss him. Time heals all wounds and I pray that soon you will remember nly the good times and the pain of your loss will go away. We are praying for your family during this time.
Love, Alice Gray, Suzanne Taft and Toni Cash
