Dear Susan and Family: My deepest sympathy on Bill's passing. I first met Bill at the Good Shepherd Saturday morning bible class where Bill and I enjoyed many wonderful conversations. Bill was a strong witness for his Lord and Savior Christ Jesus both in his willingness to serve wherever it was needed and in his strong verbal witness for his Lord. It was my good fortune to have known Bill. Romans 8:18 The Apostle Paul states: For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.

Hello Sue and Family, I had the privilege of working with Bill over the last 10 years with the PFC. He was a Commissioner for many years and accepted me at the first meeting like I had been there for the same time. He and I would discuss motorcycle rides and personal activities outside of our business meetings. He often spoke of family activities as he loved his family! We always shared the latest joke and could "jab" each other in fun which I appreciated! I will always have very fond memories of Bill! Please know that your family is in my prayers during this time. I am so sorry for your loss! Ken
