    We will surely miss him and especially his daily text messages to spread God’s Word. Even in his limited capacity he found a way to serve his Lord & Savior! He is surely in His presence NOW!

  8. Lynda,

    What a joy it was to know and relate to Bill. Surely he knew Scripture better than me or anyone else at Westwood. I hope he will say a good word for me at St. Peter’s gate; I may need it!

    Grace & Peace to you,
    Gayle & Kay
