    We have been friends for some many years; 60 plus. Our DuPont Class of 1961 dinners and reunions will not be the same. I will miss you my good friend.
    Love Phyllis

    Parie, Bill was a special person. He will always be remembered fondly by me and many others. The photographs he made in our early years still bring back great memories.

    Wishing you peace and comfort as the days go by. I will keep you close in my prayers.

    Knowing Billy was and always will be a special blessing. He was always so kind and respectful to me. He will most certainly be missed by all of those who will be attending our 50th reunion Friday night. I know he will be with us in spirit.Please accept my condolences on the loss of this very fine man. May God continue to be near to you in the coming months. Be blessed!

    I’m very sorry for your family’s loss. Your Father/Husband , loving family member Bill was very kind to me. My name is Rebecca and Addie Whitely was my Grt. Grandmother. I was given up for adoption in 1959 and William/Bill saw that I was looking for information on the Whitely, Nellums, Boyers families on a Genealogy site Ancestry .com and he got in touch with me right away to offer information and also tell me that he had photographs to share. He was very kind and selfless. Unfortunately I never got around to meeting him in person. Again, my condolences to The Whitely family and friends.
    Sincerely,
    Rebecca Magness Edzard
