We will always remember sitting behind Bill and Deb, right up FRONT, in Church service! Ron and I looked forward to their warm greeting and big hugs! I could barely focus on the Praise music, from watching them! Their glance and smile to each other as they raised their arms up high, in Worship! We will cherish any and every time we had the privilege to see Bill’s sunshine smile! We will miss our Friend and Veteran! Our deepest, heartfelt sympathy to Deb and all of Bills Family!

I met Bill and Debbie many years ago when I had had enough and wanted to “end it all” when I looked up from my fence and saw a church steeple and clearly heard the words “Don’t end it all just come home to Me”. The next Sunday I was at that church and when confessing at the alter call found Broken Chains. I have loved them while fighting them ever since though I haven’t seen them in a long time now. I will never forget Bill liking my prayer of “don’t let us absorb the darkness of this world but reflect the Light” and “Go God”! I am heartbroken over discovering this news as I got the update Broken Chains was moving back to it’s original home. Bill was a true miracle and warrior for Christ. His death comes at a time that I am at my lowest(again). Guess there really are no coincidences, are there Deb?

Bill was part of the best squad there ever was at Harris County Precinct 4. I was his Field Engineer, friend and fellow Christian. We did have fun even as we worked, and I remember the days. See you on the other side Buddy.

I am truly sorry for your loss. I worked with Bill at Harris County when he was a road and bridge inspector for Precinct 4. Very sweet and very respectful. He was very hard working and always in great spirits. He will definitely be missed. My heart is with his family at this difficult time.

Dear April and Wendy . . .

I can only imagine what heartbreak you must be feeling - honestly there is nothing harder!

I was privileged to call your Dad 'brother' for many years - I loved him - wasn't his sense of humor just the best and his capacity for happiness was limitless -

It has been said; whoever you hold in your heart, is forever and always a part of you.

They live on in the kindness they have shared and the love they gave.

These special people never leave us, even after they are gone.

Your Dad WAS this kind of person!

May he rest-in-peace,

All my love,

Aunty Deb

Dad, I was there when you took your last breath. There was so many things I wanted to say to you. Most of all I wanted you to know how proud I was of your sobriety. And yes, there is a difference between ice cream and frozen yogurt. Please hug grandma and grandpa for me.

Man, what a character my grandpa was. He always loved his “pull my finger” joke. Was always funny because any time he did it everyone else would yell out “Don’t do it!” I also know exactly where I got my ford genes from. Love you pops. We will all miss you.
