Theron and I are so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. Bill meant a lot to my family over the last 70 odd years. As a child I can remember Bill always being a quiet and kind gentleman with a smile. As an adult and marrying Theron, he became a friend. Theron recalls so many "stories" about Bill and Jimmy, as they worked together for quite a few years. We enjoyed our visits with Sally and Bill in recent years.
Our very deepest sympathy to Sally and family,
Love,
Patsy & Theron

My wife and I want to send our prayers and love to your family. Being neighbors to both Bill and Sally has been a wonderful 11 years. We've had the pleasure of they're compassion at troublesome times. Having the pleasure of great nieghbors. We can only hope that all the grandchildren, children, brothers, sisters and especially his loving wife remember at this terrible time, that Bill hasn't passed away, but has passed forward to the kingdom of heaven, where he awaits all of us. Please take the time to read John 3:16. This is how we wish to remember a great man. God Bless all who new him .
