Fred and I extend our sincere sympathy to the children, grandchildren, and extended family of Bill and Marge. Companions in life, it was fitting they should be companions also in death. Their graciousness, and kindness, their love and pride in family served as an inspiration and model for us. It has been a privilege to know each of them and to have them as a part of our lives. We shall miss them.

My sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family and dear friends of Bill and Marge. They were an amazing couple and I am grateful to have known them both and to have shared moments in their remarkable life. Bill taught me to treasure simple things like spring flowers, hot water and honey, a warm hand, and light kisses on the cheek... "isn't that something!" Thank you for the lessons and the memories. I will miss them both.

Both Marge and Bill were amazing people. I and my family (Charles and Clarita Rader , Parents) knew him very well. We worked with our new church, Covenant Community) beginning in 2004. Without him and Marge we may not have secured enough funds to purchase our first building on Marshall Ave., Akron.

You could see how their hearts were one! Very beautiful couple to be admired...adding Gods' light where ever they went! Our condolences go out to the family but our hearts and love follow them to their spirits of light. We love you Bill and Marge...Marie, Charles and Clarita Rader.
