My heart goes out to my friend Alice and family. Mr Herbert followed in his daddy's footsteps. Mr Leo was my heart that nobody can replace. When u saw Mrs Lentz, you saw Mr Herbert. They put an example how everyone should be. He was awesome. And will be missed. Live you all

Mr. Williams was a man. He was a man who loved his wife and demonstrated it by living it. He was a man who loved his family unconditionally. He was a man of simplicity. He was a man of satisfaction. He didn't need much, just family friends. Most of all... he was a man of God. He tasted the bread and drank from the fountain.
John 6:35 Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.
