    I had never met Bill, but go to church with Mike & Laura. I am sure that the Godly influence of a loving father helped shape Mike into the man he is today. My prayers go to the family, especially Betty, for the peace only our Heavenly loving Father can offer. Keep looking UP

    Bill was my next door neighbor for 13 years or so at Heritage Pointe. Bill was one of the nicest people I ever met. He was very smart and gave me a lot of good advice over the years. He helped put Kroger’s where they are today. I am forever grateful I got to know Bill, and know he will Rest In Peace.
