Chrissy & Jill, Condolences on the death of your Father, I am sure he is with your Mother and they have talked With Our Lord and are AMAZED AT THE BEAUTY OF HEAVEN.
You two, and your families, are the most devoted daughters I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Always there for your Mom and Dad, spending every week, by taking turns, with your Dad so he could be at home surrounded by his happy memories of his wife, daughters and extended family.
God is saying, "WELL DONE FAITHFUL

Worked with Bill at Brockway for several years. He was a kind and responsible colleague - "One of the Good Guys". May he rest in peace.
