I am so very sorry to hear of Mr. White's passing. I remember him well and remember fondly all of the years we spent with you at St. Mary's. You and your family are in our prayers. I just learned of his passing today and told my parents and they also extend their condolences and prayers. I also wanted to let you know that the altar servers at his service were two of my children. God bless all of you! Donna (Mathesius)

Barbra, I am so very sorry to hear of Bill's passing. I had worked with Billy for many years and have come to admire him not only as a good man but someone who was always concerned about people. I believe that is why he was such an excellent manager. Although I have not seen him in years, I feel fortunate that I was able to include him as a good friend. He would always seek out his co-workers to wish them a Happy Birthday on their birthday. Truly a loss to us all. We will keep you and your family in our prayers.
