    Mrs. Gail and Matthew, I’m so sad to hear of your loss. It was a great loss. I had the pleasure of seeing Mr. Bill once a month for a haircut for more than 20 years. I respected him very much I have missed him since his retirement. I’m glad I was lucky enough to know Mr. Bill. My thoughts and prayers are with your family! Dale Matthews

    Dear Gail and Matthew, I was so sorry to hear about Bill’s passing. He was a special friend and a good neighbor!! I know it’s been a long time since we have seen each other but I think about you often and remember all our fun times together. May sweet memories fill your minds in the days ahead and may God’s peace and love fill your souls. Francine, Molly and Justice
