Sorry to hear of the passing of Bill. Bill & I were friends thru high school. I haven't seen him since then, but do remember the fun we had at school. You are all in my prayers.

My wife and I were friends with Will for the last few years. We met him at Golden links. We looked forward to meeting him and Chewy (I know this is not the correct spelling, it was French) each week for over 2 years. He had a gruf exterior but was as soft as a marshmellow on the inside. He told a great many stories, which we will always remember. He taught us the humility and simplicity of prayer. We enjoyed the time he spent at our home with the other residents of the Links for the picnics. He always cheered us up. I know he had hard times, especially when he had his surgeries and remember the visits to the care center when he begged us for a good hamburger. The picture of Santa and Will, is me when the jolly old fellow delivered hand tied lap blankets that my wife and I made. He was a great man and we loved him. We were out of town at the time of the funeral, but we wanted his family to know that we did care. We will miss him. Kevin and Nancy Ovard.
