MaryAnn, Willie and Brian
I'm saddened and very sorry for your loss. I have so many memories of time spent with Bill, going back to when I was just a kid, and he was fresh out of the navy. He was such a good man - honest, kind, intelligent, incredibly hard working, friendly and loyal. He was always a pleasure to be around.
Rest in Peace my friend.

Alice just told me about your husband and I send you our prayers and I know how good you cared for him.
Right now my Bill is in Bristol Glenn he stopped walking and is getting therapy there. I guess too much sitting while spending so much time in the house and the snow didn't help. Miss seeing you at ELKS and you reminding me 8 PM to take my pill.

Again I was so sorry to hear about Bill and many prayers for you and your family.
Betty Lou and Bill Walker.

Dear MaryAnn and family, we send our sympathy to all of you. We got to know Bill and MaryAnn in the '70's, when our boys were all in scouts together. That has been many years ago, but Bill will be remembered as kind and dedicated to scouts and the families involved. We have fun times. Sincerely, David & Dee Shepherd
