Not sure what to say?

Love you Pops! Oh I can sure imagine the joy and embrace the next time we meet! Until then, you will be missed and with us all the time. Christiev, Lincoln, Dakota and I will continue to shine your light and feel your love always until we meet again on Heaven's bright shore.
Your Son,

Bill and I stood together and greeted as members entered the church,many Sundays. I loved our time and conversations together. He sold Frank and I our first Homeowners insurance. From the first time meeting him to the last Sunday in Church he was always the same. Caring and Loving. He will be missed. Our sympathy goes out to the family.

My sincere sympathy os extended to the Alphin family - Bill was a true and faithful friend to all that knew him. I am honored to have shared his friendship. - RIP my friend. Maude Taylor

I never met Bill Alphin, but his obituary in the Richmond paper today made me wish I had. What a special tribute from someone who obviously knew, and loved, him well. My deepest sympathies for your great loss.

The obituary is a very fitting tribute to a wonderful, kind, man. I am very thankful to have served with Bill on the Rappahannock Electric Cooperative Board. His goodness and common sense are two traits that are sorely lacking in our world and he will be missed. Chris Shipe

Prayers and thoughts be with you all. So sorry for your loss. May God be with you all at this time. Karen Alphin-Hickman (KY)
