Nancy, Angela, Holly and Randy,
Love you all and wanted to share my most treasured memory of Bill. It was from when he worked at BES. and Sarah was in Kindergarten there. She was having a tough time adjusting to school and finding her way.
There were two things that kept her grounded.
Her daily hug from Bill in the morning when she got to school, and her almost daily visit to Mary Pat’s (the nurse) office for a “time out”. When Dr. Richens alerted me at a Board of Ed meeting that it might not be such a good idea for her to hug Bill every morning, I can remember telling him that if there were more staff who were willing to give a hug to a child in need, we wouldn’t have as many troubled children. Thank you Bill for your simple act of kindness and care of our Sarah. It meant so much to her and us.

Pastor Nancy and family, you are in our prayers. My mother and I were unable to attend the service in person today due to my medical issues, but we did watch it online.

I was fortunate to have worked with Bill at BES. I will always remember his kindness to the students and his helpfulness to the staff. He was always someone I could depend on whenever needed. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him.
