Our sympathy to the Mundy family. We thank you for the many years of ties to your family through Central Christian Church when our mother, Carolyn Yoder, and Mabel worked together. Our mother cherished those years of sharing in family and life experiences. Our memories of Bill are a man who was kind, gentle, humble, caring and who loved everyone. Our prayers for all the family.
