Dear Bill and family, We would like to express our sympathy in the loss of your father, husband, grandfather and friend. I know his physical presence will be missed but his spirit is alive in your memories. Allow yourself to remember his life and the joy he gave to you all. Share "his" stories with each other to keep his memory and history alive. A special note to Bill. Bill, Having lost my father in late December, I understand your loss of a friend, companion and mentor. You'll find yourself smiling and crying for what "seems" to be no reason over the next several days, months and probably years but each time you do will bring forth more special memories to cherish. With love, friendship and sympathy, Laura & Vern
