  1. So sorry for your family’s loss. Bill lived a full life and will be missed by all who knew him. May you find comfort in your many fond memories of him, and in the Bible’s promise that soon death and sorrow and tears will be no more- Revelation 21:3,4.

  2. The Wichita bridge community will miss Bill at our
    Games. What a kind man and a joy to play bridge with. Our condolences to his family. Pat Fuller
