    Sincere condolences to the family. We enjoyed the time we had with Bill and are very sorry to hear of his passing. He and I both served in the Army and I enjoyed talking with him about our experiences. He gave us a wonderful son-in-law (Chris) and for that we are so very grateful. God bless and give him rest now. With deepest sympathy during this difficult time.

    Our sympathies to your family. We enjoyed having Billy as our neighbor for many years. I especially liked the fact that when I mowed our lawn, Billy would walk up his driveway and wait for me to ride the mower over, so we could speak a few minutes. He was a good man. We are also thankful for his service to our country. God bless the family.

    Although we had our differences, Billl was still the man I called my father from the age of 10 years old. He taught me how to raise a garden, hunt, fish and trap. For that I am grateful. RIP. Chris North (Stepson)
