To Jan and Family,
I had the honor to work with Bill prior to his retirement from Michels in the Rockdale office. A more honorable and charitable man is yet to be found. Jan, you and your family have my most sincere condolances for your loss. Please remember that you will be reunited one day of His (God's) choosing.
Peace be with you.

Jan and Family,

We are so heart broken to hear of Bill's passing. He and Jan have been such an inspiration to our family and our children through the RFKC. He will always be remembered fondly as "grandpa" to our kids.

God Bless
Diane, Todd, Ronnie, and Victoria
