I'm sorry to hear about Bill passing away. I always thought a lot of him. I remember him at Pineview Baptist Church, when I was pastor there having a lot of good times. I too thought about him and the family many times since when passing their home. I will be praying for Elaine and all the family. God Bless Y'all

Bill and I were at the LaGrange Police Department in the late 60's-early 70's. I have not seen Bill since he left Toyota, however I think of him every time I pass by there. Prayers with the family during this time.
