I like to express my condolence to the family, I went to school and was friends with Gary and John, I can not tell you how many times Bill has took me home from ball practice,ball games, (etc.), or how many times I slept over in the old gas station,(at there home) with his boys, or how many times I went with him and Gary on the paper route, I started thinking about all the memories I had with Bill and his family last night, I know he will be miss by his family and friends, but when I was thinking about their loss, I had a little smile to come to me, you know it's been a long time since Bill and Gary talked, now they can, and the will, to his family I would like to express my sympathy and tell you Bill was a great person- Steve A.
