I will miss Louise & Bill both. They were special friends for many years. I am so sorry I could not attend his funeral. I was not aware that he had passed. Saw him at church a week or so before this & talked with him. He was missing Louise. I am so glad that they are together again in their heavenly home. They are blessed indeed.

We are grateful for the time we knew Bill and Louise. They always had a smile, a great big hug, and word of encouragement for us. They were very special people who made a difference in our lives.
