When I read Bill's obituary on Sunday, time seemed to stop for a moment. I fondly recalled Bill's wide, generous smile and laugh. I worked with him for 31 years and I do not recall a day when we was not generous in his time to talk or without a smile.

you and Bill attended Bethel Lutheran Church for many years and I always enjoyed visiting with you. I was saddened to read of Bill's death and pray that God will be your comfort. Blessings to you.

Pat and family, I was sad to hear about Bill in church yesterday. We had a lot of fun golfing and singing together over the years. He always had a good word for someone, and it was a pleasure to be his friend. My deepest sympathies and prayers for all of you.

I am deeply saddened to hear of Bill’s passing. He rode on my charter motor coach many times and I always enjoyed our great conversations. I will miss him.
