Malinda, I just heard that Bill had passed away. I am so sorry for your loss. My memories of you two were when you were dating in high school and as newly weds.
Remember when Brian just didn’t
want to sleep and you two would go out and take him for a ride, even in snow, so he would go to sleep.
Please accept our sympathy for you, your children and grandchildren.

Bill and I were good friends through high school at Willard High. I remember lots of fun with his 1960 Ford Hard top. And alley tag thru the Willard alleys on a Saturday night until the cops would send us home. I am so sorry to hear of his passing.

Malinda, Janis and family..I was so sorry to hear of Bill's passing this morning. We used to have such good times back in the day.. Bill loved my cherry Kool-Aid popsicles..think that is why he visited so often in summer months along with Tom Duffy..riding their bicycles over to our house. Hope you find peace in the coming days.
