Anita, Keith and I worked many years at Littelfuse with Bill. He was a wonderful guy and always so good to us. I am sorry we cannot make the visitation. Please know that you and your family are in our prayers for your loss. Bill is in heaven sharing some of those good stories he used to tell everyone. Keith & Dreama Phelps

My prayers are with you and your family. Ron and I would be at Bill's wake but unfortunately Ron is terminally ill and we aren't able to get out much except to go the dialysis center and to the hospital every Tuesday for him to have a paracentsis performed. Wish I could have attended our last class reunion because I heard you all were there, but maybe one day we will all have another reunion in Heaven. Oh what a day that will be!!

Anita and family, the many years of stories and what a wonderful guy to work with! There is not one person I knew at Littelfuse who did not like Bill. It was so good that you both got to enjoy some retirement time in Kentucky. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Like Drema said, Bill is in heaven sharing those stories! Harvey and Janet Holland

We sat at the same table at our last class reunion. I so enjoyed our visit and listening to Billy Bob tell about when he met you. Like his obituary said, he was quite a storyteller. Oh, those memories! May God bless you and yours at this time.
