  1. Tracy Harp, Jonesboro, AR says

    I am going to miss William at the Pharmacy...I prayed for him and will pray for his family and friends. He would ask for me at the pharmacy or wait till I could wait on him or just to say Hello. May the Lord above give you all peace, comfort, and love.

  2. Aaron McLaughlin, JONESBORO says

    Heaven gained another beautiful member. Always made me feel good when Mr. Bill would ask me if I was singing on Sunday because he said he loved hearing me. He will be deeply missed. My prayer is that God will wrap his family in His love and peace during this time of sorrow. Be comforted in knowing that we will see Mr. Bill again.
