KPFT bids farewell to longtime DJ Bill Bates, Dec. 15, 1962 – Feb. 21, 2016.
His family shares this “Prayer for Bill” :
God saw that he was getting tired and a cure was not to be,
so he put his arms around him and whispered “Come home with me.”
With tearful eyes we watched him suffer and saw him fade away.
Although we loved him dearly, we could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, a determined spirit was at rest…
God broke our hearts to prove to us, he only takes the best.
