Dave, I am so sorry about the loss of your father.
I know how much you loved and cared for him along
with the rest of your family.
May it give you peace to know that he is no longer suffering and is being reunited with other loved ones (especially your Mother and his loving wife). I know God has welcomed him with open arms. Sincerely, Georgette Bergdorf

Bill was truly and great man, husband, father, grandfather, and friend. Our thoughts are with his family and friends in this time of loss. All are better for knowing him and so many have amazing memories of him. I still have the hand made birthday gift he gave me one year and I treasure it. Let those bring you all strength to get through this tough time.

Dave, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your father. I have many memories of him and your mother as they served the Lord alongside my parents. I know that you will have a void in your life, but you are a survivor and will learn how to go on. Take good care and God bless.
