    Pastor Mark Reynolds Says:

    Thank you so much for sharing a great man with all of us. Our prayers go out to you and your family. I will always remember Will as a thought provoking man who challenged my thinking. He will be truly missed, but I am sure he is not missing us for a minute but rejoicing greatly with our God. God Bless you and your family, until He calls each of us home. In Christ, Mark Reynolds
