I am so sad to hear of Bill`s passing. I knew Bill when we worked together at Maple Crest Nursing Home some years ago. I just want to say, Bill is one of the Sweetest Men I have ever known and his Heart was bigger than life. And to Bill`s Family, I hope you find comfort in knowing that God will take very good care of him.

Amber, thinking of you at this difficult time. You & your family are in my prayers. I am deeply saddened by this terrible accident. :(

I am deeply sorry for the loss of William. May you find comfort from God. Revelation 21:4 tells us what he will soon do: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

We became friends with Bill and family during our children's little league years as well as travel ball. There are way too many fond, laughter filled memories that we still speak of and laugh about even now. Bill and family made our memories of those years full of laughter and joy.

Bill had the best smile and was a shining light at Stroke Camp, the Stateline Stroke Support group and the Aphasia group. He had a sweet spirit and will be sorely missed.
