To Sylvia, Tom and all the family,
We extend to you our condolences. Bill was a good man; husband, father, grandfather and churchman. I count it a privilege to number him among my friends. I cherished his comments/questions/critiques following my sermons. He listened carefully to what I had to say and I also benefitted when I in turn listened to him. May God strengthen and comfort you at this time.
