Our deepest sympathy on the passing of your husband, Bill. He was one of my husband’s best friends in high school and he will be missed. You and Trevor will be in our prayers.
So sorry to hear this. The Egbert and Mills families lived on the same big block Rosedale/Chambers/Columbia/Plum and we all played together in the big field in the middle. And in the Winter went sled riding on Plum St right past their house. Good memories of a friend and family. RIP Bill.
When I was a teenager I lived in Greenville and was a regular babysitter for the three Egbert children who were such good kids. I am so sorry for your loss, I am praying for the Lord’s peace and comfort for each of you.
