I work at Perdido Sun in Perdido Key Florida behind the desk. The small amount of time that i was able to spend with Bill, i knew he was a good man. He was very kind to me and i loved his smile. He will be missed here at the Sun. I will always remember him. Life is short and we don’t know when God will call us. It’s so wonderful to know that we will all see him again.

My Prayers be with you all

Bill was a great snowbird friend. We enjoyed playing golf with him and he was a true gentleman. Bob will miss having someone to talk with and having a drink once in a while.

May he rest in peace and keep on smiling among the angels.

We are snowbirds, also from Michigan, who know Bill from the Perdido Sun. Ed enjoyed Bill’s company especially on card evenings. Bill was always a gentleman and nice to be around. Our thoughts and prayers to his family. Ed and Judy
