||William and Carrie Medley and Elaine Stamper
|Mark, Frankie and family,
We pray God wraps his healing arms around you and
gives you the strength to get thru this difficult
time. You may be mourning your loss, but Bill is at
peace and doing more fishing than he could of ever
dreamed about. You all are in our prayers |
||Randy, Suzanne and Justine Bundy
|Thank you for all the memories and laughter. You
have the best spot for fishing now and they will
always be biting. We love you and will miss you
but our memories will always make us smile.|
|Wherever Bill is right now I do hope the crappie are biting, the deer are grazing within easy rifle shot and the coffee is hot. I would say I hope his boat is in good tune and never misses a beat, but knowing Bill I suspect he'd just as soon be working on it. RIP Bill.|
