We moved into our condo right next to Bill less than a year ago. Our 1st visitor was Bill. He showed us so much warmth and interest. He really made us feel right at home. We knew we had made the right decision in moving here. He was self-sacrifice in looking out for all of his neighbors. He lived by the Golden Rule, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
We are so very sad at his passing.
Our heart goes out to his loving family.
We long for the day when “all those on the Memorial tombs will hear His voice and come out.” John 5:28,29
