The first time we met Bill, he was busy putting up some shelves in your apartment despite his back problems. When we saw his guitar and learned that he has served many years as a Minister of Music and Youth, he offered to play and sing an original song for us…it was a love song to you Fran, as I remember. 🙂 Another day visiting in your home with Bill, we learned that he loved the Broadway musical “Cats”, and he sent the DVD home with us to watch. Just a few glimpses into a hard-working, talented, and devoted man who loved the Lord, loved you, and loved music. We know you’ll miss him, and our hearts grieve with you in your deep loss. But we rejoice in the victory that Jesus gives us over death. Bill is with his Lord and Savior freed from the anguish of pain and suffering – Halleluiah! We continue to pray for you the comfort and peace that only our Loving Heavenly Father can give, His arms of love holding you close in the days ahead. We love you!
Becky and Bob

I knew Bill from CHA many years ago. He and my sister liked each other in about the 2nd or 3rd grade. Always a very nice guy.
