Another goodbye- Until we meet again Grampa Bill

On Sunday we lost another amazing man in our life, Grampa Bill/Gramps.  You’ll never meet a man as generous as him. In Luke 12:48 it says: “…For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required…”   God gave Bill so much, and Bill gave just as much to others in return.  Bill (and […]
