My heart is broken... What a wonderful, wonderful man Bill was. Knowing him these last several years is a blessing. He was the sweetest, nicest, kindest "gentle" man in the world! The Soup kitchen will never be the same without him...... His service to God and and his faith in God carried him through every day of his life. Those big hands and big feet couldn't even begin to challenge the size of his heart!!! Miss you, Bill....

A GREAT MAN. He makes me think of the way St Francis and The Good Samaritan treated people. Loving them unconditionally. Giving of himself for others regardless. May HE rest in PEACE !!!. Tony Schneider( St Bernard's prayer group.)
