  7. Stuart, Steve and Alan,

    I just wanted to share with you that I had visited the site and made copies of the obituary for 4 of my colleagues. They had heard me speak of Uncle Bill, and one, in particular, felt that she almost knew him. I’ve also posted his picture and the obituary on my cubicle wall here at work.



  8. Bill was one of our favorite people in our Sunday School Class at Central Methodist Church. He always had a bit of humor and was a friend to everyone. We will miss him.

  9. I’m a v. close friend of Janet.I’d like to express my deepest condolences to all your family members.May god be with you in this diffucult time to hold your hand and comfort you.

    So sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. Know that our prayers are with you and your family.
    I know that your Dad was very proud of the wonderful work you do for our youth department and Pole Creek Baptist.

    Take Care and God bless you,
    Drew and Connie Weeks

  11. Mom and I were so sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. He was an extraordinary man and I was so grateful for the kindness & love he showed Mom and I when we lost my dad. He’ll be greatly missed by all of us connected with MAWS-8. Your family remains in our prayers and thoughts.

    Semper Fi,

  12. Stuart, Steve, Alan and family,

    I was very sorry to hear of Bill’s death. It wasn’t too long ago I ate dinner with him at the Lion’s Club Turkey Shoot and he said he was taking oxygen at that time. He always had a smile and something nice to say whenever I would run into him from time to time.

    He was always a good friend to mom and dad. In fact, I’ve been imaging many of their old pictures and saw where he and your mother were mom and dad’s matron of honor and best man. They remained good friends forever and that says a lot.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time.


  13. Bill was a friend and High School class mate of mine. WE would like to offer our sincere sympathy to all of Bill’s family.
    Roger & Helen Glance.

  14. Stuart, Steve, and Alan,

    I was so very sorry to hear of Uncle Bill’s death and regret not seeing him since Aunt Jane’s funeral. I do have wonderful memories of him and deeply appreciate all the support and love he showed me and my children once he came into our family’s life when he and Aunt Jane married. I wish that I could be present on Saturday, but I unfortunately cannot. Please know that all of you will be in my thoughts and prayers at that time and in the days ahead. I hope to be able to come to Asheville this fall and will look forward to seeing you again then.
