Jacqueline - Thank you for your phone call! Please know that you are in my prayers and I am sending my deepest condolences to you and your family. As you know, Bill and I were good friends and colleagues for over 30 years. While we had different worship traditions, we shared a strong faith in God as Christians. That faith lets me know that he is safe in God's heaven. We will meet again, but I will miss him here on earth!
