Bill Farmer - At rest in the Lord. 30th August 2006.

This article was published in October 2006. Please see Latest News for more recent information.

When Bill suffered his stroke we all hoped that his setback would be temporary, and indeed we rejoiced when later he felt well enough to come to the occasional service or Saturday Lunch, but sadly his recovery was not to continue. Over the years Bill had played such an important and active role in our Chapel's life and having a stroke must have been both devastating and frustrating in the extreme.

Bill was a splendid and inspiring preacher and many will remember his Sermons and "After Supper" speeches for their down to earth approach to life and wry humour. Although Bill was always laughing and joking, making merry quips, the life and soul of the party, he was solid as a rock in his faith and a fount of good and wise advice when needed. He was utterly reliable, an ideal Senior Steward and a very good friend to everyone at Chapel. We know that Jean and the family have had a most worrying time and pray that knowing her Church Family at Eaton Bray offer our love and support will comfort and help her.

A reminder that our Lunches will resume on Saturday 14th October at 12.00 noon and that we extend a warm welcome to you to join us.
