  2. Lucille, I am so very sorry to hear about Bill, you know what a good friend he was to both Tyler and I. I can’t even express my thoughts, I just always thought he would live forever. I know he wouldn’t be happy the way he was, . You two were married so long, I can’t imagine the loss you must be feeling. You both will be in my prayers. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. I will miss him. Terri Phillips
