Thoughts & Prayers to "Bill's" Family & Friends. We lived near Bill and his family growing up, and Bill and I became friends.
He was always so nice, and he would walk over to my house and even though looking back he seemed quiet, however, we
had some good conversations. I haven't seen Bill for a long time but over the years I became friends with two of his sisters.
Lois and Marilyn -- I always asked them how Bill was & shared some memories I had of him. I am sorry I never ran into him
when I was out and about. aRIP Bill.

Blessings,
Bill & Diana (Skeet) Moore
