Thanks Bill for a life well lived and the wisdom and friendship that you could always share. There is no doubt about the many boys you helped and how you helped us when we were houseparents at Bethesda ! You were also a good Sunday School teacher at First Alliance in Savannah.Sally we'll surely be in prayer for you and your boys and their families as I know this is a shock that only Jesus can sooth! God bless ! Robert Q.

Dad, as I sit here at your house it feels empty without you. You have been such a stronghold for not only our family, but for many over the years. In the 46 years I knew you, you never waivered in your trust and faith in God, your love of my mother and your wife of 51 years, your love for your 3 boys, and your love of friends and people that you met in your years. You committed your life to helping others, many of them young boys that you helped turn into men through your 36 years at Bethesdsa Home for Boys. You always showed God's love to others and you were the same no matter the circumstance. You dealt with good times, bad times, and some in between, but you were steady. Thanks for being my friend and mentor. I will miss our daily phone talks where we laughed and told jokes. Sometimes I would even call you a second time that day because there was something else I wanted you to know. You always made everyone feel special, especially your family. I know I will see you again in heaven but in the mean time I am broken. When we had what was our final converstation, you kissed me and told me you loved me and that is the best gift of all. I will always love you and know that I was the privileged one to be your middle son. You lived your life for your best reward, which is now in heaven with Jesus.

Mom, thanks for your unconditional love of my dad. Your life has been exemplary in your path traveled. I know life has not been easy for you and dad was your best caretaker for the past 33 years. As these changes happen, know that you are loved and will always be cared for. The 51 years you were able to spend together is an example to many. This is not easy, but we will walk it together. Love, Phillip (Flip).
