Bill was such a faithful and lovely man. His sense of humour, and honesty, was something that made him a joy to be around. Any time that you spent around him, you would hear about his family, and he would light up when talking about what they were doing, when he was seeing them, and the adventures they had together. The congregation was blessed to have Bill and Shirley as leaders and a true example of what being faithful was in practice.
