    I am lifting the family & friends of Bill Freeman up in my prayers for comfort and peace as they lay Bill to rest in his final resting place. God be with Bill,especially right now, because it is never easy to let go of your parent no matter what age you are or what the situation is. Just bless his friends that loved him dearly and are having a hard time letting go of him. Lord, all these special things I request of you and your extra Grace and mercies.

    Ruby and Billy so sad for you all. Bill always would tell me I was older than him. That was his favorite thing when he saw me. Just because I looked only didn’t make it true. Miss all the cousins who have passed.

      What a joy to have know this huge hearted man. I met him when I was just 15 and from then on he never forgot who I was. He always had a smile and a kind word. He will be missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Ruby, we know what a special man Bill was. He was a real servant in the church at Central while we were there. To know him was to love him. Pat continually prayed for him while he was ill. We now pray for you & family as you give him to the Lord.

    We have many sweet childhood memories of Bill. Ronnie started telling stories the moment he heard of his passing. Billy, you would get a kick out of hearing them. I sure did. He grew up on Freeman ridge a place I love. Prayers for all he left behind. Ronnie & Mary (Freeman) Leroy
