Dear Phyllis: Extending my deepest sympathy to you and your family. I just read Bill's obituary ; it was so well done and I liked learning more about him. What a great man! I have appreciated the support from you over these past few years. I know they have not been easy ones. God bless you and your family. May God bless you all and give you extra strength during the upcoming days. Sincerely, Jackie

I for one am sad at the loss of this man not only for the family, but also for myself. I had the privilege of meeting this man when I was a young man. He gave me a job in 1967 working at Kalamazoo Roof Truss. As I was with him some 10-11 years, he taught me many things. I have always thought very highly of Bill and have a place in my heart for him. I have always wished the best for him and his family. Now he has the best but will be missed.

Grandpa Lightvoet, He is in my fondest memories from my childhood. It was the highlight of every summer to Travel to Kalamazoo and Gull Lake to visit Grandpa & Grandma (Phyllis) and all 4 Aunts (Stacey,Stephanie,Pam,Bille) . He was and will always be loved by his family. Rest easy as our Lord and Savior can now embrace you and welcome you into your eternal home in Heaven!
