We extend our deepest condolences to Bill�s family. He has been a good friend to us for several years and it was always nice to see him working harder than anyone at Publix ( or so it seemed to me) and having social time at the Surf with him and other friends! It was always a challenge to play trivia with him before trivia was a thing! We wish the family peace during this difficult time! We will be making a donation to one of the local Fernandina food banks in his memory.
With our deepest sympathies, Darlene and Kevin Estes
