My deepest condolences to the family. I did not know William personally, but I know Randy, and have heard how much William loved and was loved. I pray the Holy Spirit comforts all during this period of grief and sorrow. Linda S
I always enjoyed working with Willard Mike Dionigi.
So very sorry to hear of the passing of my foster father. He was always a very kind man to me. He taught me how to fish. He used to collect silver dollars and would give some to us kids. And he used to listen to great jazz music. To the McCowan, DeBerry and Redwine family, I will continue to lift you up in prayer. Love you all and God bless you. Judy
