It is with great sorrow and heaviness of heart that I send this note. We express our deep sorrow for the loss of Bill. Although many years have passed by on our journey we were good friends and would always chit chat when we would see each other. He will be greatly missed. Our prayer is that God will bring comfort and peace to the family and friends.
Dear Sharon and family,
I knew Bill well back in our high school days. I mourned with him when he lost Cheryl, those were such dark days.
I am so happy that his life turned around and he had happy years.
God bless all of you. May he RIP.
Can’t believe Bill passed away as he was a very good friend in high school. I have not seen him in many years but want to pass on my condolences to all in his family. I have though of him over the years and will head back to see if I can find out where some of our other friends are. So sad.
I live in California and Malaysia.
I just have found this site and will look on.
