Today Is A Very Sad Day

Our friend, Bill Houser, died yesterday from a massive heart attack. Bill was 53 years old and is survived by his wife Linda, son Andy and daughter Stephanie.

Bill was and will always be remembered as a super guy, a great husband, a great father and one heck of competitor and fun guy on the golf course. It is suggested by his dear friend, Mike Vinson, that this year's 25th Annual Memorial Day Golf Tournament that we put on and which he was an integral part of, be dedicated to our friend Bill Houser.

Rest in Peace Billy. God Bless You.

Sorry for your loss.

An individual's death @ 53 gives us all a chance to appreciate the life we have and those around us.

One can never know when such loss will effect us and sadness is all we have as an emotion?

I don't know if you read my blog, but if you do, I'll call you in a few days. Take care brother, take care of your Mom and sis.

Your dad was awesome.

Thanks for such a wonderful post.

Bill, Linda, Andy & Steph are an extension of our family -- we share their grief and shock. But hope they know we love them and are here for them through it all.

Bill leaves us all with so many wonderful memories of him - and those are what we will celebrate.

Amy & John
and the boys
