You have my deepest sympathies.Losing a loved one in death brings pain and tears. But, please know that one day this will all end. Revelation 21:4 states: And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. May Jehovah strengthen the family during this time.

The Dunns are family to me- Bill and Catherine nursed me through the lowest, saddest time of my life and I have been eternally grateful to them both. It's been my honor to have shared in the life of their family. My world will never be the same with Bill gone, but I thank God for the grace of having known him

Very saddened to hear this. I always told Bill he was an old school "engineer", smart as a whip. How he managed to keep my dilapidated car running when my boys were so little is beyond me. Will always have fond memories sitting with Bill & Catherine & Dicky on summer eves way back when. Had plenty precious times & a lot of laughter... It's hard to be "boss" all the time. Now, Bill can relax with Jesus in charge. Love to all his family...

William was a good man. I grew up around William and his family. William was a good mechanic witch we always call him the shade tree mechanic. But boy he knew what he was doing. I will always call him my friend. My thoughts and prayers goes out to Dunn family. R I P William Dunn
