May God provide you and your family with peace and ìthe comfort from the Scripturesî during this difficult time. (Romans 15:4)

Bill: You gave so much of yourself, your talent, and your friendship to me, to us, to Chimney Rock Village. You were a mentor to others, you did the difficult jobs receiving precious little praise or thank you, and you carried the ball for our community in so many ways. You were even doing work for us in the hospital until several days before you left us. You are sorely missed. Rest in peace. Do some planning or zoning work in heaven so it will be a better place when we arrive.
