Phyllis, we grieve with you at the loss of Bill and Steve. Sometimes the burden seems almost too heavy to bear, but you will have the love and support of your friends to lean on. Bill was our beloved long time friend and we will miss him so very much. It was such a double blow to lose Steve this month,also. We are sending our love and deepest sympathy to you and Mike and family.

Good evening Phylis I can’t believe Bill has passed away. I’m sorry for your lossI can remember all the times that we picked Bill up he used to always tell me I was th only one that could start a IV on him. I remember talking to Bill at Walmart a lot. It seemed like we were all there at the same time. I can remember when we taught the staff CPR at the school’s. Well Bill I will
Meet you in heaven. I’m going to miss you. God bless you and your loved ones.
