  1. My heart goes out to Janice and family. Bill will surely be missed. Worked for Bill back in my Taco Villa days. He always had a smile on his face. I’m sure Bill and Paz will be having a good time sitting around and telling jokes and laughing together.
    From myself and all of Paz’s children Walter, Brandon, Paula and Cindy our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    I truly enjoyed working with Bill for many, many years at Taco Villa. He was always a bright spot in my day when we met or had a conversation on the phone. I was so happy to arrange for him and you to meet John Fogerty at our fundraising concert in Odessa. He was smiling from ear to ear! May he rest in peace and in the arms of the Lord.

  5. Janice and Family-
    Thoughts and prayers as you remember the many many good times with Bill. I remember Good times through the TACO days.
