Dear Patty and Debby, Words can't possibly describe the pain and sorrow your family and all that knew Bill will be going through. I have found that when you think you can't possibly go on, God always gives you strength to honor your loved ones. Memories will sustain as you learn to heal from this devastating loss. Healing prayers sent to all

Patty & Family,
Words fail me in the passing of Bill. My thoughts & prayers are with you Patty & family. We shared many good times with you Patty, Bill & the boys when they were growing up at church and a bonfire or two at your house with great fellowship. I know yrs have passed between us since we have seen one another but I still cherish those times we met at Glasgow praying and talking about the Word of God, Patty. That has always remained in my heart and the bond we had in the Lord. Please know our thoughts & prayers are with you & your family. Much Love in Christ, Joe & Manetta Gorenflo

Patty and Family, I was so sadden to hear of Bill's passing. I was not in the area when you had the service for Bill, therefore I was unable to come and give, one of my favorite gals and her family a hug and tell you in person, that my heart is with each of you and hope knowing how much fun and love you shared though out the years, will always stay with you and give you peace! May the love you have for each other, give you comfort. Sending you big hugs, love, prayers and may God be with each of you. Bertie Combs
