Dear Gail and Emily,
It has been many years since we shared an office at OSU and you shared your Emily and Bill stories. I am so sorry for your loss and will keep all of your family in my prayers.

Gail, we are heartbroken and are so very sorry. Bill was such a beautiful human being and wonderful man. His smile alone brightened our lives. We were so looking forward to spending more time together after our retirements. We continue to pray for God’s comfort for you, Emily, Paul, Barb and all of us who will miss him so much.

We will always remember our game nights full of laughter, friendship and fun! We were in awe of his and Gail's beautiful backyard garden. And always enjoyed their garage sales. So sad to hear about Bill's sudden passing. He will forever be in our hearts!

I am a classmate of Bill's from West High School. He was a great guy. Always, always had a great smile on his face. So sorry for his family's loss. Saw him at our reunion and had a nice conversation with him. God bless Bill's family and may you rely on God's strength and remember all the wonderful times he spent with his family and friends.

I was shocked to hear of Bill's death. Just saw him two weeks ago at the church. He seemed fine and told me of he and Gail's upcoming trip. My prayers go out to Gail and her family. What a terrible loss of such a wonderful person. Love

We were extremely saddened to suddenly lose such a wonderful, kind, and warm friend. But also grateful that we had one more delightful day with him and Gail in Jan, when they came to visit us in Florida. He seemed to radiate such a joy for life and the drive to travel the world and seeing all there was to see. And we loved seeing it all through his eyes. He said so many times 'go and travel as much as you can while you can'. And he sure did. Our condolences to Gail and his whole family plus all his friends at MCDS and all the other organizations he was a part of. He will be sadly missed.
