    I first met Bill while he was residing in the shelter. It took 2 seconds to love this man. He was just a bright soul with a tremendous wit and sense of humor. He gave of his time, hands and feet to help others thru The Salvation Army. He shared on a few occasions in church how he loved what he felt at The Salvation Army and was getting better. He always bragged about his lady. His death is a massive loss to many. He struggled with somethings. He admitted that. I saw the war that was waged by the enemy. He didn’t want Bill to thrive and live life to its fullest. The enemy went to great lengths to hold Bill hostage. I regret not fighting harder for him. Wish I could go back and change it all, but the brutal reality is…I can’t. So, I choose to remember Bill for the loving, compassionate, funny man that he was. Bill, I will conjure up a corny joke to tell…in your honor. I expect you to laugh and no one else. After all, that’s often times how your corny joking went πŸ˜€
