I'm so sorry for your loss. I know personally the loss of a loved one, and the pain can seem overwhelming. However the Bible offers us a hope for the future. Acts 24:15 speaks of a resurrection. We will see our loved ones again! I hope this brings some comfort to you in this time of sadness

To Bill's Family,
Bill and I were classmates throughout our elementary and high school years. My family lived at 110 N. 73rd. I especially enjoyed watching him host our various high school reunions. They were immensely successful and enjoyed by many thanks to all his work to organize the reunions. 
Fond regards always, Eldeen Harrison Temple

Very sorry to see this. My condolences, especially to Lynn. You guys were our wonderful neighbors for so many years. I still do daily walks at Greenlake and think about you sometimes as I pass the Hearthstone. --joe malnar
