Bill was a friend and coworker both at AK and in the funeral service industry. I first met Bill in 1974 at a funeral home in Morehead where he was employed at the time. We've had many long conversations through the years. Mrs. Whitt & Family, please accept my deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers.
