This is a shock, and I'm very sad to hear of Bill's passing from this life. We grew up together, our families lived down the road from each other, we rode the school bus together, and were in the same classes in school. I am thinking of, and praying for comfort, for his wife, children, sister Emily and for all of the family. I pray that they are comforted by family, friends, and God's Word.
