Prayers for the family. I worked with William at Harpers. He was a very kind and caring person. He always took the time to answer your question no matter how busy he was. William was well liked by every one at Harpers. He did not sugar coat any question a person had. Not many people like that left these days. God Bless you all.

William was a man of faith who took good care of everyone he came in contact with. Most of all my mother.

Thank you William for all the love you gave.

Go rest!

Love Sherry
