Bill was an amazing person and a leader. I was in the singles group at church and he kept it going. Talked to he & Helen about 2 months ago. Sorry for your loss. Cece Hoenig.

Bates family, we grieve your loss with you. We didn't know Billy but we can see in the family members we do know that this godly man left a precious and lasting legacy. May that and the sure hope that he is seeing his savior face to face be your comfort.
