    So sorry to hear about the loss of Bill. He was a great Christian example in every way. He loved His Lord. He loved the Lord’s church. He loved the Bible. He loved to worship together with all the saints. He especially loved his family. His good attitude, his compassion for others and his love for seeking the lost was evident in his daily life. He was one who walked in the way of the Lord and not just talk about it. The family will miss him! The church at River Road will miss him. We all will miss him greatly. God has welcomed him home to receive his promised crown of life. 2 Tim. 4:6-8 in his memory! God be with you Marie and the rest of the family in this transition time.

    What a great man. Always a pleasure to talk to. I’ve especially enjoyed seeing him and reminiscing with him at the UAW retiree union meetings the past few years. I’m sure that he and my dad are together now talking baseball. My sincere condolences to Wayne and the entire Garland Family.
