Our Dear Friend Bill's Obituary


Recommended Posts

Thank you, Ginny. I saw it yesterday and signed the Guest Book, but didn't know if it was ok to put it up on the site. I guess I should have just asked somebody if it was ok. I went back to it and see that you also signed. Thanks again.

God bless you,


P.S. When you type a link, I think it just automatically turns into a link when it's posted.
