To Marlene, Jake, Andrea and other family — It was fun to talk with Bill the times he came to Broadway in recent years — after growing up next door to him. After many years we had lost touch. So your Broadway membership reconnected us. I sensed how much he meant to you, so I pray your memories remain so. Thanks for being at Broadway. Psalm 95:1 “O come, let us sing unto the Lord : let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.”

I join my brothers Dan and Don Gibson in remembering Bill who lived next door to us as we were growing up. I remember talking to Bill and his parents often as we shared a 3-way “party line” phone with a third neighbor and negotiated who would get the line next. They were good neighbors. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

You have my deepest sympathy. My twin brother Don and my sister Joan and I remember well the years we lived next door to Bill on Orchard Ave. May God comfort you and give you His peace as you remember your fond memories of Bill.
