    I am sorry for your loss. May God give you the strength you need to get through this difficult time. God's word assures us that death was not part of God's plan for mankind, therefore he promises to end death forever and bring back to life many of those sleeping in death. Please read Isaiah 25:8,Daniel 12:2 and Revelation 21:3-5.

    I was a customer to Bill, but more than that, he was a friend to me. We shared much about trains as well as other things. I will miss him very much. My deepest sympathy to Carol and family
