Our sincere condolences and heartfelt prayers for Janet and all of the family. Bill was genuinely a Godly man, and a true friend. Our memories of him go back to the mid-70's. He was quick to laugh, quick to cry with compassion, and quick with an encouraging word. We had the amazing privilege of being Bill and Janet's Pastors, as well as being their friends for many years. He loved the presence of God, and was a great example with his faith. He will be deeply missed, and remembered fondly.
