Only God could tell why Bill's name entered my mind today, but it did. In looking up his name an obituary appeared and I saw that he recently joined the Land of the Believer. I fondly recall him during my short membership time (1968-69 during the Monsanto facility startup of the TiO2 Pigments Plant, for which I was sent to help facilitate). Bill was such a perky, pleasant pastor and preacher! His memory remains in my heart. I will see him in a few years or so. I live in Florida and have been retired from Monsanto for 20 years, yet fondly remember New Martinsville and First Baptist Church.

I'm sorry to hear that Rev. Withers has passed. He was a very sweet man. He married my husband and I on May 23, 2002. Roger and I were married 10 yrs before he passed Sept 2012. My prayers to the family.

If everyone who had the privilege of being a friend of Bill could have said how they felt about him at the funeral, it may have lasted until Jesus comes again.
