I am very sorry for your loss. May the memories you shared with William bring you comfort, along with the comfort from God as you draw closer to him in prayer during this difficult time.

Very good memories of your whole family from elementary school at Pleasant Grove through volunteering with IPVFD. Bill was always the calm, steady, supporting person that really helped me learn how to drive a fire truck and run the pumpers lol. I hate that I can't make it to the service but my thoughts and prayers are with you...
