    Thank you Bill, for being such a good neighbor. Hank and I valued your friendship highly. We liked your positive attitude. You are now in the caring arms of Jesus. In Christ's love,

    Bill was a neighbor and friend for over 20 years. If you needed a helping hand with anything, you could depend on Bill to drop everything and help. He always had a building project going on. In retirement, he built two aircraft, a truck camper, furniture, total renovation of a wooden boat, bluebird nesting boxes for neighbors, a complicated solar water heating system - just to mention a few.
    He was the best friend you could ask for.
    We were blessed to know him.
