Bill’s family would like to extend a special thank you to all his neighbors, the Maxwell State Bank, the VA Hospital, and WesleyLife Hospice for all the wonderful care received.
This last part is for my neighbors and friends. I leave you with this:
“All through life, pitch pennies in the pot, so that in your old age, you’ll have a pot to pitch in. Amen.”
