    Bill was always a fine gentleman,whom we could trust completely.

    I worked with him daily for several years when he was a mechanical supervisor at Exxon and I was a process supervisor.
    My life was enriched for having known him.

    What an incredible blessing he was to all who knew him, and especailly to his family and his nighbors who were blessed to know him and your mom. I am sorry his last couple of months were difficult, but giving thanks that he didnt linger in an uncomfortable situation. The last time I visited him he told me several times that he liked his new home, except that Mary wasnt with him. Now they have a reunion You are all in my prayers, Becky
