Best wishes Bill,

I'll never forget Bill when he played the banjo for us. A dear sweet man.

We are so sorry for your loss. Bill provided for you and loved you very much. I will always remember playing Pictionary at our Holiday family get togethers we laughed so much.

My mind has travelled back to when Bill, Twila, Louie and I would spend every Friday and Saturday night playing scrabble, yahtzee or just sitting around talking. I'll never forget the camping trip we all went on and Bill got strep throat and could barely get out of the tent!!! Wonderful memories I have of the 70's. Twila, I am so sorry for your loss and please know that I am thinking of you and your family. Love, Louann
