  1. I am sorry to read of your loss. How comforting it is to know that Jehovah understands our pain and provides the comfort that we so sorely need.–Philippians 4:6,7

  2. I had the pleasure of meeting Bill (my future step father-in-law) in June 2016. He is a wonderful, soft spoken man with a great sense of humor. I will miss not getting the chance to know him even better. Bill, thank you for your service to our great nation, and for being a devoted loving husband to your wife, Kathy. Rest in paradise, Bill. Love and hugs to you! Deene

  3. Kathy, so very sorry for your loss. Just know that Kellin and I will always be there for you. Don’t hesitate to call us if you need us. Love you much, Deene
