"We are ever so sad to hear of us losing Bill. However, the knowledge that he is with Jesus is comforting. You are certainly missed by anybody who was fortunate to meet you. I can hardly think of Bill that I don\'t remember his great sense of humor. One year at the Lewistown Assembly of God we held a New Years Eve Talent Show. Yes, Bill\'s talent was his humor. He appeared as \'Baby New Year. He was complete with a king size baby bottle and diaper. \' Oh yes, you are missed here and heaven will never the same. Love and prayers for Rosie and family."
