Communities mourn the loss of Bill and Nancy Stafford

Not much more can be said other than what those have expressed on social media platforms like Facebook and the many conversations most of us have had with each other after our area was stunned by the passing of both Bill and Nancy Stafford.

Many of us have verbally or emotionally expressed our grief and sadness for the loss of two individuals who touched the lives of many through the years.

Our hearts break for the retirement time the two never had the full opportunity to enjoy as they spent many years running their business while always looking for a way to meet the needs of others.

The stunned feeling many of us have may not wear off for a while.

This is definitely a time of mourning for many in our area. Please be sure to take time this week to pray for the Stafford family in their time of loss.

Visitation will be held from 5-7 p.m. at the First Baptist Church Family Life Center in Vandalia on Wednesday, January 9.

Services will be held at 11 a.m., Thursday, January 10 at the First Bapist Church Family Life Center in Vandalia with Reverend Mike Barter officiating.

Burial will be in the Vandalia City Cemetery.

—“Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4 KJV
