I am saddened to hear of Bill's passing. He and I were friends through high school, for which I am thankful. He had a great, memorable sense of humor that brightened our high school experience. I offer my heartfelt condolences to his family.

Bill was a special friend. Someone who I will always remember.
We spent many Sunday afternoons watching football games in his living room. Bill was an amazing cook too. He loved life and loved people.
Bill, thanks for making this world a better place.

It was such an honor to be present at the birth of both William & Carl as they took their first breaths. I cut the cord the first son & then handed Bill the scissior the second son. WOW. This will be an honor long cherished. Trusting God to multiply every good & perfect gift for this family & for the boys to fully embrace their heritage of the Lord. AMEN

Bill was my friend from the seventh grade on; even though time and circumstance put us together all too infrequently, the bond we had brought me much joy. I am saddened by his passing and send my condolences and love to Chris, William, and Carl.
