Condolence: I know this is months after Bill's passing, but I just found his obituary. I wanted to express my sympathy for your loss. I met Bill (via email) many years back when making an inquiry as to some information on the Wetzel County geneaology website. I asked him how he had gotten all of this information about my family.....he answered me by also telling me that we were about 4th cousins. I, too, am a Cunningham decendant. We would email back and forth about what he knew of the family. He was all was so very helpful. Reading his bio & obituary I learned a lot about him. He was a very talented man.

Condolence: My sincere condolences to the family of Billy L. Cunningham - May you find comfort in your loving memories, great pictures and in recalling the many talents of Mr. Cunningham. It was not the Creator's purpose that mankind suffer and die (Romans 5:12). God has promised that a time will come when no one will say "I am sick" (Isaiah 33:24). In the Bible we are promised the resurrection of dear family members and friends that we have lost (John 5:28, 29). I hope you are comforted by Bible promises of a hopeful future (John 17:3).
