    Eric, I was shock to hear of your Dad's passing. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers! He was a very nice man! I remember him always at the soccer fields. You made him proud - don't ever forget that. Julie Teague (Austin Lewis' Mom)

    Mr. Bill was truly one of the finest men you will ever meet. Layed back easy going hard working. I myself will really miss him. Not only was he a co-worker but he was a friend. Going to miss you Mr. Bill. My heart and prayers go out to his family. For we have truly lost a great man.
