Karen, Tara, Chris and family,
I am so very sadden To hear about Bill! Bill meant a lot to me. I will truly miss being able to talk to him about my Pennsylvania Peffer family. He sure could make me laugh and feel better when I was down and missing daddy and the rest of the family we’ve lost over the years. He always made sure I got to see the sights of where daddy and his siblings grew up. That meant so much to me! He would do anything for anyone and was always so very proud of his family. He was a great cousin and I’m so glad I got to know him better these last 20 + years or so. I will continue to pray for Jesus’ peace, comfort, strength and courage for you all during this difficult time. I love you all and will stay in touch! Bonnie
