I will never forget Bill, and his engaging and welcoming soul. Such a joyful person to be around, and always had an interesting story or perspective on things. I always loved how Bill and Reba were 2 peas in a pod and made everyone feel happy to be around them!

Bill was one of the nicest persons I knew along with his wife too. I was so honored to have met them both at Anchor Baptist Church when I was introduced to the church by my friends. My heart goes out to Reba his wife and their family at the loss of this nice person Bill. I was so glad to have known him too before his Dementia started and set into his life. He battled it hard and always fought it to the end. God bless him and Bill I will forever miss you and I am so glad I had the pleasure of meeting you and knowing you. Now that you are in heaven you may get to meet my folks they would have liked you so much. God speed Bill! And my deepest condolences to the Hodgson family.
