Our deepest sympathies to the family.   Jerry and I considered Bill one of our very special friends and we will miss him.  He was such a friendly fellow who was always interested in others, always had a smile for everyone, always kept in touch.   He liked keeping his friends close.   Even when he was not  feeling so well,  when we visited or called him,  he wanted to  know how WE were doing.  We didn't hear a word of complaint from him.  We will cherish  all the special memories we have of him.  Our love to Caroline who  took such good care of him and to each of the children.  Bill was a  good and decent man, well liked and well respected, a man to be proud of.

So sorry for the Hankins family. Sending prayers! I knew Billy from being a greeter at Walmart. He was a wonderful man! RIP Billy. You're with God now watching over your family.

Scott and I are sorry for your lose. Sending condolences because we will be unable to attend because Scott has an appointment in  Dayton. Caroline just wanted to let you and the family know how very sorry we are and we will keep you all in our prayers.

Caroline and Family, please accept our deepest sympathies for your loss. Billy meant a great deal to me and my dad, Michael Bruce, who passed away May 3. They would talk often at the Brethrens home when Dad worked there and while Billy was there for rehab. I missed him being at Walmart, and when I would see him he would always ask how my dad was doing. They both will be sorely missed. Love and prayers for you and your family for peace and comfort. Love you always, April and John Kelly
