    We all will miss Bill. He was not lonely a great friend but he was also a great person to listen to everyone’s problems and not make comments on anything. We are going to miss you dearly Bill. Red doesn’t have anyone to go to doctors appointments with and just to come down to the house and hang out. Rest in peace. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
