Bill will be missed by me and everyone who ever knew him.
He was my 2nd Father.
He was the most fun loving and selfless Man I've ever known.
So long Old Man.

Some of my best memories come from growing up around him.


My prayers and sympathy are extended to the family and loved ones of Mr. Blansit. Keep your faith in the resurrection promised at John 5:28, 29. Soon God will put an end to all sickness, sorrow and pain. He will also do away with our enemy death as promised at 1 Corinthians 15:26. Pray for God's kingdom to come as Jesus taught us to do. Please be comforted by the words expressed at Revelation 21:3, 4. Remember: God keeps His promises and it is impossible for God to lie!
