    My sincere sympathy to the family and friends of _Bill. The loss of our dear loved ones can be very difficult and distressing to cope with. It has helped myself and others when we remember that our dear loved ones now safely rest in the loving memory of our Grand Creator, Jehovah ( Psalm 83 : 18 – God’s name ). May you be comforted in knowing that Jehovah hates death ( 1 Corinthian 15 : 26 ) and promises to eliminate death forever and bring ones sleeping in death back to life on a cleansed earth. ( John 17 : 3; Isaiah 25 : 7,8; Revelation 21 : 3-5; Acts 24 : 15; Psalms 37 : 10,11, 29 ). I hope these few scriptures along with your own good and loving memories of Bill help to soothe your hearts and bring you comfort, peace and a hope. Sincerely

    His family remains in my prayers.
