To Bill's family and friends,
Bill was a kind soul and generous with his time. He was a good and supportive friend to me in my creative endeavors.
I shall miss his input and many emails.

Linda and Jim,
I don't know if you will remember me but I was Dr. Parker's nurse at Suburban Clinic and knew your whole family for years. I am truly sorry for your loss of Billy,; he was such a dear person with so much compassion for others. Today I have many memories of the years when your parents were alive and you all were young kids coming to the office as patients--there are many that I remember but your family always was special to me. May God be with you and your whole family.

Unanswered yet? The prayer lips
In agony of heart these many years?
Does faith begin to fail, is hope departing,
And think you all in vain those falling tears?
Say not the Father hath not heard your prayer;
You shall have your desire, sometime, somewhere,
You shall have your desire, sometime, somewhere.
Unanswered yet? Tho' when you first presented
This one petition at the Father's throne,
It seemed you could not wait the time of asking,
So urgent was your heart to make it known.
Tho' years have passed since then, do not despair;
The Lord will answer you, sometime, somewhere,
The Lord will answer you, sometime, somewhere.
Unanswered yet? Nay, do not say ungranted;
Perhaps your part is not yet wholly done,
The work began when first your prayer was uttered,
And God will finish what he has begun
If you will keep the incense burning there;
His glory you shall see, sometime, somewhere,
His glory you shall see, sometime, somewhere.
Unanswered yet? Faith cannot be unanswered;
Her feet were firmly planted on the Rock;
Amid the wildest storm prayer stands undaunted,
Nor quails before the loudest thunder shock;
She knows Omnipotence has heard her prayer,
And cries, "It shall be done, sometime, somewhere,"
And cries, "It shall be done, sometime, somewhere."
