Carrie and family, I am sorry for your loss. Bill was a pillar of our Allstate community and will be missed. I enjoyed working with him, He always welcomed me in to his office with a smile. Your family is in our prayers. The Lord's acts of mercy are not exhausted, his compassion is not spent; they are renewed each morning-great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

I knew Bill since he worked at Life of Georgia. Although we did not keep in touch we would see each other once in a while out in Lynchburg and share a few moments chatting. It was a blessing seeing him on TV singing in the choir early on Sunday morning before I left for church. I simply wanted to let you family members know that I will be in prayer as you celebrate and grieve Bill's going home.
