    Bobbie, Debbie, Donna, David & Family:
    Wayne & I are sorry to hear about your loss of your husband, father and grandfather. In a letter written by Bill & Bobbie about their 60th wedding anniversary party, they wrote,” This was a real treat to party with ‘live'(young and old) happy people. During the past few years we’ve been attending too many other sad gathering. Many of our friends never made it to their 60th, so we are very blessed we did and are doubly blessed to be able to have shared it with so many dear dear people.” We were more than blessed to have known the both of you and were glad that you raised such thoughtful children to have organized that party. In these current times attending a funeral to remember one’s life is not a possibility. I am glad I kept that letter and was able to see all of you at that wonderfully happy occasion. You are in our hearts and prayers during this sad time. Wayne remembers his oldest cousin very well from over the years and has fond memories of family visits. Bill is in my thoughts and he will be missed.

    So sorry that we here on earth have lost a wonderful man, husband, father, and grandparent, but I bet the angels are VERY excited.
    He showed me sincere compassion in one particular instance, for which I have always held him in high esteem. May he now rest peacefully in the arms of the Lord .
