Memories Timeline


  1. Bill will be surely be missed by so many people. Bill, was my brother in law. I remember Bill’s beautiful smile that lit up the room as he entered. His kind heart, his loving ways, his forgiving nature will always be remembered. Bill was a godly man who exhibited the love of Jesus to all he came in contact with. Little children loved him and were attracted to him because of his gentle spirit. We have lost a wonderful man, but God has gained a good and faithful servant.
