Enlisted Bill into the Army Reserve while he was making a portrait for my family. Bill was a good soldier and fine individual. Will be praying for his family.

I’m sorry to say I didn’t know Bill but I’ve known his sister, Lyn for many years. Since they were raised by the same parents, I know Bill had the same moral values that Lyn shares. Bill was a soldier. I want to thank him and his wife as well. Wives give up their husbands to do their duty even if missing weddings, children’s graduations, little league, etc. I know he suffered greatly but as Lyn said “he is breathing now”. Thank you for your service Bill!
