So sorry to hear of Bill's passing. Our mother's lived together while my father and his father were serving in WWII, for a short time. My father was the brother if his mother. Hazel.Bill and I were about the same age, around 3 to 4 years old. Once the war was over, Hazel and Eddy went to Va. I did not see him but about 5 times, when Hazel came back to see her mother and father in Colerain.NC We were just a few months difference in age.

My Condolences to the Easton family. This must be a hard time as you deal with the loss of your loved one. May you find comfort from our loving Father who "will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away" Revelation 21:4. This is a wonderful future promise which awaits us all under the reign of Christ Jesus and will do away with death forever.
