  1. Dear Carver Family,
    It was indeed my pleasure to be associated with Billy thru Felkel Oil Co. He was always a joy to talk to and he smiled everyday when he came into our office. He always had a kind word for all. We will miss him as I know you already do. God bless each of you as he carries you thru this valley.

    Prayers & Blessings,

    Sheila Walden

  3. To Bill’s Family:

    Bill and I worked together for several years at Peak Energy and I came to know a very special individual. Behind Bill’s gruff exterior was a heart of gold and a work ethic that I came to admire very quickly. An earlier comment mentions his care for his wife. I came too late to know her or his time with and care for her, but the stories told were of incredible devotion. We were all devastated by the news of his illness and by watching his heroic battle. We will miss him greatly. A good man lost way too soon.

  4. Angie and Carver family,
    There is no words that can come close to explain feelings that was shared between Mr. Bill and myself. Me and Bill had a lot of fun times at the oil company and I will hold onto them forever. My heart is broken that I will never get to talk to him again but my heart also rejoices for the reward he has now entered into. What a fight he fought, Mr Bill I Love you dearly.
    Carver family my thoughts are with you guys and I love each and everyone of you.
