Becky, so sorry to hear about Bill. He was my "special" friend. I remember being "Raggedy Ann & Bill being Raggedy Andy" at church in the parade. We had so much fun together. We always laughed. He and I won that day...but Bill is the real winner now... he is heaven all well and shouting. I know you and many others will miss him...but one day we will all be together again. He was a special man and we loved him and we love you very much. Our prayers are with you.

We are so sorry to hear of the death of Mr. Brown. Although we only knew him for a short while, it was evident that he was a brother in Christ. Our prayers are for peace, and that God will give you comfort. Bill is now walking the streets of gold.
