    Bill was one of a kind we had several laughs and good times. We had one in particular and that was moving his daughter Missy back to Tenn. Bill was going through a lot at that time but stayed strong and was a trooper. We will miss you and may you Rest In Peace. Our love, prayers and sympathy to Darlene and the entire family. We love you. 🙏🏻🙏🏻

    Darlene shared a lot of fun times her & Bill had together, but nothing was more exciting than when the grandkids
    arrived. Austin and Noah loved fishing with Papa. Memories are what the family will always cherish. Keep
    the faith and know God will continue to keep his arms around you, Erica & Missy and the entire Pohlman Family during this difficult time.

    First I met Darlene at Red Hat Ladies events. We just moved here at the time did not know my way around Nashville. Darlene was so kind and said She’d drive if I’d like to come to her house. I got to know Bill somewhat during these many times of going to shows, Red Hats, and concerts with Darlene. After Bill started fighting his awful times with THE BIG C. I’d call and many times He tried to be postive. Then I got to know Missy after she moved to Tenn. I love this sweet family. He fought a hard battle. Bill no more battles, God called you home where that battle is over. Rest in peace and Thanks for sharing with me.
