The Wyatt family,
We are very sorry to hear about the passing of Bill. Our family had known him for many years and always enjoyed the time that we spent with him. Bill was a good friend, a faithful servant of God and he could brighten up any room with his singing. He will be greatly missed. Our sincerest condolences go out to the family and may God bless you and bring you peace in the days ahead.

May Our Lord be with those who weep & filled with grief. May they find comfort & peace.
My greatest memory is of Uncle Bill singing. He now can join my Dad & some of his siblings & sing The Lords Prayer to Our God.
