During the summertime, Bill used to climb into his chest freezer to cool off. We warned him that it was dangerous but he said that he never let the lid close entirely. Bill loved the Lord and frequently handed out Christian literature to anyone who would take it.

Bill loved the Lord and rarely missed Bible Study or Church. We were thankful to have spent several years together in the same Bible study group. We loved you Bill and know that he is at peace with Jesus now.
