  1. Bill and I met in high school, 11th grade history. He liked to tell the story about taking me out driving one night when I drank all his beer. That was 40 years ago. When I was single he expected me to spend holidays with him and his family. It wasn’t a standing invitation. He expected me to be there. He could sometimes make me angry but always had my back. I’ll miss him greatly.

  2. With Heartfelt Sympathy to the Kitchens Family,

    May you rely on the God of all comfort to help you to endure the days ahead.

    “God is our refuge and strength”. (Psalms 46:1).
