Mr. Loden had a quick wit, he was gracious and he had a personality that filled a room. He always had kind words to say and my students and I always looked forward to our visits with him. I will miss him and I am better for knowing him. God bless his family.

Bill was a kind, loyal and true friend to us, especially in his friendship and relationship with Hani. His family is in our prayers as you go through this tremendous loss. He and Hani were in regular contact, as recently as only last week. Bill was a hard worker all his life, and excelled at everything he did. He was a sensitive and gentle man. We will truly miss him as he has been in our lives for many years. Sincerely, Hani and Nancy Sidarous
