Not sure what to say?

May the God of comfort be with you at this time

Bill was one of my favorite people at Viewmont. Whenever I had a project that involved wood and saws, I usually called on him for advice. He was always willing to help, no matter how wacky my ideas were. When I got my own saw for a project for my daughter, he always greeted me by holding up his ten fingers, making sure that mine remained intact. He was a sweet, caring man, loved by many because he loved so generously. My heart goes out to you Arlene, and your loving family. May God hold...

Sorry to hear of my friend Bill Taylor's passing. Wish I could have been there today but health problems keep me from going anywhere. My thoughts and prayers are for his family. We served in the Navy together and he was a great friend.
