Such good men are hard to find, he was one of them, I'm glad to now have a connection with his remarkable power that he held and still holds for souls like me. I move forward to gain some dreams and thoughts that he shared so that I and my friends can grow and be better and evolve as he wanted us all to do as I....

Mary & Family Members,
I will deeply miss Bill's smiling face and seeing him mowing the yard! He would always have his suspenders on and whether he knew it or not, he always made me smile. You both were there for me when my Mom passed and have looked after me. I will always treasure Bill and if there is anything I can do or help with, please let me know. Your neighbor, Val Massey
