  1. He will be missed. You and Bill have been a part of our Family’s life through the square dancing other events. You are in our prayers at this time of sadness. Hugs and Love, Tracy (Shirley’s daughter)

  2. Bill was a good father and husband. I considered him a friend, not just an Uncle. Bill always left me with a smile. I will miss greatly. I wish we could have been together more often. The whole family is in our thoughts and our prayers.

  3. Bill,

    Lord be with you and we will watch over Jo Beth for you and take care of any need’s I am able to help her with..
    Lord be with you as you rest in peace..
