  1. Bill was a kind and gentle soul who loved God and all His created family. I met Bill while we served on the Alpine Camp Board in the 80’s, and our paths have crossed several times over the year and it was always sweet to share God’s gifts in conversation. Well done, good and faithful servant!!
