I miss you so much. You are in my thoughts every single day and always will be. You were the BEST dad and grandfather ever. I thank God for you! Oh, how I wish I could hug you now and tell you how much I love you, just like old times. I love you, Dad!
April and family, Wil was truly a blessing to be around and I enjoyed our professional association in addressing Alabama's rural health needs. I especially appreciate Wil's personal consideration for my family's well being while my late wife was evaluated medically at the UAB Medical Center. Blessings to the entire family.
April sorry for your lost.I always enjoyed talking to Doc and you when I was your postman
His spirit radiance, through those he have touched, and those who,are still in this earth realm. The grace that, my fellow HS classmate (Kimberly Deal/Wolpert), is now explained. A lovely dad, researcher and doctor..Indeed, his work was completed.
Gone on this side,but has crossed over to assist others.
Be at peace.
April, Kimberly and Kathleen,
It is a sad day when great men leave this earth for a better place. We will keep all of you in our prayers daily!
April, I don't know if you remember me or not. We went to Floyd and J.D. at the same time. Just wanted to know that I remember you and I am praying for you and your family. Sincerely, Pam (Porter) Bakane
We are shocked at hearing the news of Professor Deal's passing. It is also a great loss to us because Professor Deal had been so helpful to us in promoting our medical education. His gentleness and warm smile will forever be in our thoughts, and his devotion to medicine will always be an encouragement to us.
I would like to express my heartfelt condolence to you and your family on behalf of Chung Shan Medical University in Taiwan, and that you may get fully restored in God's loving care.
My Dear April! This is unimaginable! I am so sorry!!!!! Frank and I met your husband for the first time on last Thursday when you shared your dinner table with us for Camp Anytown and NCCJ.
My whole heart is here for you. I will be with you in any way that I can.
I just received Shap's email this afternoon telling the Floyd class of Bill's sudden death. Let me first extend my heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. The loss must touch you very deeply as you face these first numbing days of grief. Though I never met Bill, I remember how touched I was when you described your life together and the joys of supporting him in his professional work as well as all of the activities of his lively and loving family. The love the two of you shared was obvious. I know how strong you are and during this difficult period, I know you will draw on your deep personal resources that I respected and admired....even in highschool. Know that there are a lot of us who are thinking about you and holding you in the light and love of Divine Spirit. Much love, Jan Farrar Gurr
April, so sorry for your loss. My prayers for you and your family.
April, I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers going out for you and your family! Love, Betsy
Please accept my condolences for the loss of my 2nd cousin Dr. W. Deal. His grandmother was my Aunt Annie from Erwin, Tn. I am sorry to say I never met Dr. Deal but I heard a lot about him from my sister Kathleen Jones.
April & Family:
Please know that you have my deepest condolences for the loss of your loved one. May God bless you during your bereavement process as you keep his loving memories in your hearts.
Will and I descend from the same great-grandmother. He was such a shining star in our family galaxy. We did not have many oportunities to get to know him personally, but we certainly know how proud of him his mother and siblings were! He lived a life of great service that many will long remember. We are so sorry for his sudden loss. Know that the Erwin clan will be praying for you in these difficult days. We will make a memorial gift to Louise's church here.
