I'm so sorry for your loss. Bill was an amazing person to talk to and had some really great stories. I was his dental hygienist for 12 years and always looked forward to seeing him. Every time his name was on the schedule, it made my day. Please know my prayers are with all of his friends and family during this sad and trying time.

Mrs. Sprinkle & Family,

Bill was one of the kindest individuals that I have ever known. I had the great privilege to be able to
have him as a boss for over 30 years. His door was always open to listen to any problems and he always
had just the right solution. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you during this time. It is truly a sad day for his "Schewel family."
