When I first met Bill 3 years ago, I immediately loved him. He was such a sweet, kind, man and I feel so incredibly honored to have met him & to have been able to be apart of his life, even if we didnt see each other all the time. His stories could have you laughing and when he talked about the things he loved, his eyes lit up with happiness and his face was full of joy. I loved Bill and am so happy and blessed that I got to know him. Thank you for all the laughs and hugs.

I had the privilege of meeting Bill two years ago, A wonderful man. He was funny he had so much character in him. He had so many stories that he had to share. They were entertaining, educational and I am so thankful that my youngest daughter Tiffany and my oldest granddaughter Ashley and my youngest granddaughter Addison got to meet him as a part of our family. Even though I only knew him for a very small amount of time I am honored to have known him .

I'm so sorry to hear of Mr. Hoods passing. Loosing a loved one is never easy. I lost my dad in 2010, and my mom in 2012. After my losses, reading Revelation 21:3,4 gave me real comfort. It says: And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. I hope reading these verses also give you comfort during this difficult time. GW
