We sure will miss seeing his letters to the editor in the Tribune. I always admired how he spoke up about issues that were important to him and to the community. God bless each of you!

Eleanor, Ed and I were very saddened to hear about Bill's passing. He was a wonderful person and I considered him my friend. I hope he knew how much we appreciated the support you and he gave to Historic Lincoln. The support and encouragement each of you gave to us made a difference for the organization. Thinking of you and praying for you at this time.

Ed and Sylvia Robertson

Ed has such fond memories of unexpected times of great fun while we worked together at Reinhardt. Please receive our prayers for your comfort. Sylvia
