    We are so very sorry for your unexpected loss of Bill. You have been his faithful caregiver for so many years and God will bless you for all that you did with your patient, loving care. You have managed to serve our church in many ways, including singing in the choir and still tending to his every need these past few years. We love you so much and know that God will wrap you with His love and give you peace.
    With our love,
