    I have always thought of Bill.. as a dear friend. A special memory is a trip to Nashville with him as the driver to the Grand Ole Opry in a rental bus. Before we moved to Raleigh he and I were together in SUNDAY SCHOOL at ETBC.
    I along with many others will miss him until we get up there together. Johnb
