Dear Gwen and family,
It is with heavy heart that I partake of your grief. Bill will always hold a very special place in my heart. I can only believe that he is no longer suffering and is now at peace with his Father in heaven. I am so sorry for your loss, I pray God will nurture you all through this and any future difficult times.
In Yeshua's name,
