William Trace Funeral - Thursday 10am

I remember Bill as "the man who came to church faithfully at 7am every Sunday" - and Bill did.  Each Sunday morning he would sometimes wait patiently (when I was late) to get into the church and begin his prayer.  Then one day he called me aside (which he usually didn't do) to tell me that he had been diagnosed with cancer and would need to talk with me soon.  Well, talk we did and Bill, after receiving the Sacraments and what we commonly call the "Last Rites," returned home to the Lord.  His obituary follows.  

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.  May he rest in peace.  Amen.  May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.  Amen.

William L. “Bill” Trace, 76, of 31 S. Church St., Waynesboro, Pa., died Sunday, March 20, 2011, at his home. The family will receive friends Wednesday from 6 to 8  p.m. at Grove-Bowersox Funeral Home, Waynesboro. The service will be Thursday at 10:30 a.m. at the funeral home with the Rev. Joseph C. Carolin officiating. Burial will follow in Green Hill Cemetery, Waynesboro.
