    Bill was the best person/friend a person could have. He was my rural carrier for several years then I had the pleasure of working with him at the Frankfort Post Office for several years until he retired. Prayers to his family.

    I lived across the alley from Janet and Bill. He was such a friendly man. I remember a knock at the back door it was Bill. He wanted to come in. We both sat down and talked about what happen two weeks ago. My wife was killed in a car accident. He gave me comfort when I needed it. He was a good man. He will be missed.

    So sorry we couldn’t be there. Dick died Monday at hospital in Kokomo. So I was with him. He sure loved Bill and would have been there if he could. Now they are meeting in heaven. Love to all of you. Sally
