    We planned to travel there to see Uncle Bill and family in early April. Guess we will have to see you when we all meet in heaven Dear Bill. What a gentle giant! We loved his sweet spirit and big heart. I alway felt the presence of his brother, Odis, whenever he came to visit. It was a delight because Odis died in ’96, Rest In Peace Dear Uncle Bill.

    I was so sorry to hear about my father in law passing away. One of my best memories is when I took him sturgeon fishing on the Columbia river. I miss you Bill.

  • Daddy, Don James and Bill Taylor worked at the Studebaker shop in Lubbock, TX and Haliburton at Farmington, NM together. We kids had a lot of fun living in Apple Valley subdivision in Farmington. Best wishes to the family. Lia and Evelyn James, Mom

  • Though I know that this is a difficult time for you, my hope is that you will be comforted from God’s inspired word the Bible. John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21: 3,4 gives hope of a future resurrection and the complete elimination of death, pain and mourning. Under Jesus’ kingdom rule we have this and much more to look forward to. Please accept my deepest condolences.
