So sorry for your loss. I did not personally know Bill, but heard my Dad and Mom (Basel and Beulah Bryan) who have both passed as well, speak of him often. I'm sure they have and are having a joyful reunion in heaven. Praise be to God for victory in in and thru Jesus Christ....that we will can be with them again in eternity. I pray for peace beyond understanding for each and everyone of you during this difficult time. Much love. Vickie Bryan Green

Bill, was a good man. I always enjoyed talking with him. After I left Christian county I only saw him at the alumni banquet at Spokane High School. So, we haven't talked in a while. I know he will be missed, and remembered for a long time. Ralph Vest

Roy, again so sorry about your dad. He was one of a kind. I can understand your loss since both my parents are gone also. He is always just a memory away and I know he left a lifetime of them for you and your sis. Keep in touch... Dr. Dave and Helen Simmons.
