  2. Dear Mavis – I was saddened to learn of Bill’s passing and regret that I could not be at the service. Bill was a dear friend and always a source of encouragement to me in expressions of appreciation for my ministry. I know you will miss him terribly – but I know the Lord will see you through in the weeks and months ahead as He did for me in my loss of Gayle. God bless you and the family. Fondly – Doug Moffat
