I was very sorry to hear about Bill's passing. He and your mother were wonderful people, and they were special friends to me and my late husband. Bill was there on the most important day in my church life. He was the Clerk of Session when I was ordained as an Elder. He and Ann were good Christians.

So sorry to hear of the loss of your Dad.  He and your Mother were great neighbors to my parents.  He also assisted me with my algebra or I would have never passed that course.  Remember all the good times.  Barbara Smith

Rest in respect. You were my superb eighth grade math teacher. Thank you for positively influencing the lives of so many young people!
