    Nancy and girls,

    I’m sorry to hear of Bill’s passing, I’m glad we got to see you Nancy last month at Mom’s funeral and we spoke of Bill. I remember as a child as neighbors to grandma, coming over to play with the girls. Good times and memories, Bill always seemed to be happy, kind and smiling. I can still see him standing at Akard’s at the gas pump with his changer on his side. : ) I hope you find peace and comfort knowing he is better now in God’s hands. Prayers are with you and your family.

    Words can’t manage to convey all the love we have for you all. I can’t help but smile to think of Dad, Daddy and Grandpa sitting in Heaven telling stories and spreading ‘bull’. I can see them laughing, joking and having an amazing time!! All the fertilizer those three are spreading will make the gardens in Heaven even more beautiful. You are all in my prayers, Mom. Love your long-lost-daughter.
