Irene and family,
May the Lord comfort you all. I have been thinking of Bill and Irene for several months. Life has been on full speed for ever. So many changes but one thing for sure... Bill and Irene were my spiritual parents for growth in the Lord. They were the greatest my life is so much richer for having them in my life. Marian (Mary) Kuhlman - Cochrane

Bill and his family attended the Otis Orchards community church where my husband, Byron, was the pastor for eight years. Bill and Irene, as well as their children and extended family became best friends to us and we have always loved them and have great memories of them. Bill was faithful to The Lord,the church and his family, I never knew him to waver.

I like the thought that Byron preceded him to heaven by a couple of months and was there to greet him.

Bill, can words tell what Heaven is really like?
My love and prayers for comfort all those who feel their loss.

I graduated from cheney high school 1968 with his daughter Linda. I remember Bill would stand out by the bus stop with her waiting to go to school. Also went to Marshall community search growing up. My family lived on Assembly Road. We were the Russells. May GOD comfort you in your loss. Sincerely Andrea Russell Miller
