Dear Novella and family, Words cannot express the sadness that each of you are experiencing at this time in your life. Bill was a wonderful man, husband, father, grandfather and a friend to many. We will all miss this fine man and may each of you feel his love and presence in one another in the days ahead. You each are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. May God's peace be with you. With deepest sympathy, Paula and Vic Waterman

Our deepest sympathy goes out to Betty and the entire Herman family. So many wonderful memories of Bill who was an incredible man that everyone and the entire community looked up too. I will never forget all the visits as a kid to your home or out to the lake and Bill making sure I had a full belly at every meal. My parents (Vernon and Sylvia Harris) thought of Betty and Bill as their best friends, and Im sure they both greeted Bill in heaven. Bill will be forever missed and memories of him will last forever in our hearts.
