Dear Carol Ann & family,
Bill was always Billy to me, he was my big cousin and I always looked up to him, literally. He always called me Kiddo even when I grew up. I will miss our yearly visits and our telephone calls. I pray God gives you peace in this time of sorrow.
Love and Prayers,

A Allen & Carlys December 8, 2022

Carol Ann and Family,
Allen and I send you our most heartfelt love and sympathy. My favorite memory is how Bill would look up at the organ and wink at me especially when coming into the sanctuary. He appreciated music and shared his gift of singing generously. His death stings in our hearts while we wait to see him again in Heaven. My thoughts and prayers will be with you on Saturday.
