    I send my prayers for Bill's family. I am a Sikes Senter mall walker. I knew Bill the whole time he worked at the mall. He always had a big smile and a kind word for everyone. We have missed him since he left when he became ill. He helped our group of mall walkers to keep in touch with each other. He encouraged everyone. Towards the end of his shift he would walk by the shops and give a wave to the shop keepers. Bill was the heart of the mall for so many years. He is greatly missed at the mall. Brenda Hardy
