    I will always have my memories of the time we shared. Never forget the summer that I spent with you, Troy, Barbara, and Bill. We laughed so much. Even though, I haven’t seen Bill in a few years I will miss his smile and Gods comfort for you all.

    Oh Cristal,

    I am so very sorry that I didn’t know before now. There’s nothing that I can say that can make this any easier for you. I’ve been there. I didn’t know him, but I do know that he must have been a great man to have raised such a kind, wonderful woman. You are dealing with so much right now. I’m here. Please forgive me for not attending the service. This year has been horrible for you. Covid and now your beloved father. Please try to remember that he was blessed to be loved by you, my dear friend. I love you.

    I enjoyed my short 3 yrs of being Bill’s neighbor. Always a smile, and a chuckle. A gentle sense of humor, and friendly, even to people just driving past his house, who were greeted with a wave. Thank you Bill, for the friendship, and I wish your family comfort in this time of loss. RIP Sir!
