My mother became one of many friends of Bill during his time at the Village at Morse farms. Bill was so friendly - always had a smile on his face and was very encouraging and inspirational with his positivity. On one occasion, he took my mom and other friends to Whirl a Whip in Girard for an ice cream cone! Our sincere condolences to Bill's family for the loss of such a wonderful father / grandfather / great grandfather!

My sincere condolences to the Harding family. Mr. Harding was such a special person. Absolutely never knew a stranger. His rewards in heaven will be many. I pray your wonderful memories will give you much peace and strength.
What a "Gem" of a guy. One that you could truly love. We all will miss that genuine personality and respect he showed all. May we find solace in remembrances of good times with Bill and reassurance that most certainly he is with our Lord.
Sweet Bill was one of my most favorite patients at Siteman. I absolutely loved getting to see him, talk with him, hearing loving stories he told of his family - and then of course, watching him or seeing him off to enjoy his Popeyes chicken. The day he treated the whole building to lunch was a special one. He was delighted that day, as were all the staff. We definitely did adore him and now heaven is lucky to have him. My deepest condolences to his children and family. You all took such good care of him and it surely showed. He is rejoicing with his lovely bride and that makes my heart happy. Rest in eternal peace my sweet friend.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Harding family.
I think my favorite memory of Bill will always be his electric smile and ability to make everyone he spoke to feel special. He never missed an opportunity to say a hello, offer a kind word or lend a hand. He made the world a better place and will be missed by so many.
In going through my chemo infusions, I was encouraged by Uncle Bill's phone calls to pray with me & for me, and vice-versa. I can still hear him praying!
Praying and Trusting in Jesus, our Lord & Savior!

Condolences to Gary and family.
I will never forget the day when out of the blue, Bill stopped by my house and asked to pray for me. I had been diagnosed with cancer and was to have surgery in a few days. What a wonderful Christian man. Thanks be to our Lord for healing him and giving him a new pain free body.
So sorry for your loss. Prayers to all of the families.
I did not know Bill personally…but felt his divine presence through the stories shared of his life by his amazing daughter Cheryl that Bill lived an incredible life, full of kindness, & giving. A legacy to be honored and remembered. Sending my sincerest condolences to his family, and the warmest of hugs to my dear friend Cheryl. Remember..we are all worth it, and your Dad will be watching over you and rooting for you all.❤️
Loved this man to the moon and back. Always had a smile for me even when he wasn't feeling good.I kissed you on the forehead goodbye..but I know it's not really goodbye because I will see you again someday.
You are Our Lost Heaven's Gain
