    I believe Bill was my uncle (whom I am named after). Our family has been estranged for decades. He had brothers Everette and Don, and an older sister, Roberta Louise Lovelace. Their mother was Ollie Stultz, who married E, Lovelace in Stephens County, Oklahoma. Ollie (Stultz) Lovelace died in 1935, and is buried in Okema, Oklahoma. If you know of any living relatives, please have them contact me.

    I am part of a ministry from our church who go to Medical Lodges every week and sing hymns and bible study. Known Bill for approximately 6 months. He was such a dear soul, very gentle and a willing participant in the ministry session. He came even when he didn’t feel his best. His demeanor always portrayed the Christ like person he was living. I know I shall see him again!

    Bill made the most important decision of his life last year when He chose Christ as his Savior. He found the peace he longed for and left here with the hope of something better than he experienced here on earth. Bill will always be a reminder to me that God is all about second chances.
