I am very sorry to hear of Mr. Bill's passing. That is how I knew him as a kid. In addition to he and Mrs. Margret being family friends, I cut his grass and helped him with projects around the house every Saturday from the time I was about 10 until 17. He was a good man and will be dearly missed.

He was a wonderfully generous, kind, and Christian man! May he rest in peace.

My mom, Betty Henry, worked as a legal secretary for Bill years ago. We are so very sorry to hear he passed on. Bill was always very kind and helpful. He and Margaret would send my mom an Amaryllis plant every Christmas. I was unable to find Samantha on Facebook. I used to have her cell number but it’s no longer in my contacts and wanted to express our sincere condolences to Bill and his family✝
