I was so sorry to hear about Bill's passing. I always enjoyed seeing Bill and talking to him, he always had the most wonderful attitude about everything. Slatington was a better place to live because Bill Stein lived here. He was one of the nicest person I knew. I wish his family my prayers and blessings. Bill will be missed by all, he was a great man filled with love and good spirit. He made a difference to all of us whenever we would see him. I was honored to know Bill, and share in your sadness, but at the same time celebrate the great human he was.BlessingsScott Barhight
