Im going to miss the way he would keep a church alive with his amen and haw haw and yea. He was the best deacon a Pastor could ask for and if nobody said anything he would. He was a good man, husband and father. Now he has earned his wings in glory. Good job and good life Bill, we will miss you my brother. Rev. D. Lee Glover M. Div,

Dear Annie, Sandy and I are so sorry for your loss! Lee Mulkey sent us the news of Bill's passing. We now live in Greenville, SC and can't attend Bill's funeral. However, we want you to know our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I know that your strong faith will carry you through this sadness and support you as you go forth with your life. I frequently think fondly of you and the other TDABers out in the trailers working for EPA those many years. We would love to renew contact with you, so here's our email address: [email protected] Let us know if there is anything we can do to help you. Bob and Sandy Swank
