I am so sorry I couldn't make it to the visitations. I have learned so much about Bill through working with you. I know that everyone will miss waving at him as he drops you off or picks you up. You and your family are in my thoughts during this difficult time. Loosing two men in your life, so close together, has got to be heart wrenching. Love and hugs!!!

Jeff and I have a special place in our hearts for Big Bill. He was not only a co-worker that Jeff knew for years at Coke, but the man that thought enough of me to set me up on a blind date with one of the guys at Coke so I could attend the Christmas party with him and Sandy. First try was a flop- so when the second year came around I warned him this one better be a good one when you pick the guy. Bill set up a double date with the guy from Coke and we met him at East Ridge Mall as a group. Poor Jeff had to survive not only meeting me for the first time but Bill being so protective of me the entire evening. The Christmas party was a success- as I've always said I think we fell in love that night. And ten months later Bill and Sandy were directing our wedding. Well- Bill was in the front room standing guard telling Jeff that he wasn't going anywhere and don't even think about it (and Rev. Tow told me later he felt sorry for Jeff with that big guy standing guard at the front door). Bill and Sandy- you have been a special part of our lives for over 28 years. We always think of Bill each year on our anniversary and how God used him to bring us together. (Side note- our daughter was born on the first Saturday of December which is the same day and date that Bill brought us together for our first date. Bill - our matchmaker, we love you!

I am very sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in God's Word that promises the last enemy, death, will be brought to nothing (1 Cor. 15:26) and the hope of being reunited with those whom have fallen asleep. (John 5:28,29)
