Bless you Chris; I know you gave your All, to help Bill through the years you were, "so to speak" His "Right Hand Man". We are sure that everyone who knew BIll, will think of Him, and Remember Him, with "Deep Respect"...a Loss to us all....especially You, His Family. Sincerely Janet Jundt, and, Ron McCurdy. - Posted by: Janet Jundt (aquaintance) on: Nov 10, 2021
