    Dear Margaret and Family, we don’t know if you remember us but we remember you all very fondly from our days at Brogan Avenue Baptist Church. We are sorrowed to hear of Bill’s passing but we know that he is at peace in the presence of Jesus. Please know that we are praying for you and that separation in this life is only temporary because we have been given the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Blessings on the Hentz Family.

    Ms. Margaret, I don’t know if you will remember me, but my dad, Tom Bell, worked with Mr. Bill for many, many years at the Water Dept. I remember him so well, and he came to our house when we lived in town many times. He was such a nice man and had such a nice smile. My deepest sympathy to you and Vickie. God bless.
