I was a friend of John's many years ago. Bill was a typical big brother..chasing us around; but he was always cool and we looked up to him..what a loss!! My best to his entire family
Bill and I went to Central School together and on through to BEHS. He was always a good friend to me. He had a good heart and always greeted me with a smile when I would meet him around town. God Bless his family...

I was saddened to see the loss of your father, losing one's parent is remembering your childhood all over again, I hope the memories will be fond. Our prayers are with you at this time.
We are friends to Angie and Ryker, every time we see them they make us smile. May the memories of your dad and granddad bring you smiles to last the rest of your lives. Our sincerest sympathies for them and their family.

Dear Donna and John,
I'm sorry to hear about Bill. The times that I talked with him always left me smiling. I'll always remember how humorous and good natured he was. Sorry I missed the memorial.
Dear Donna, Angie, Johnny, extended family, and the rest of the ol' "Safeway Gang" of friends...
I'm truly saddened with the loss of everybody's pal, Bill. I'm equally bummed that I was unable to attend services or "celebrations of a close friends life". I would've liked to try to ease the sorrow with some hugs, and maybe a couple of stories about some damn funny memories I have, as far back as "Dock's Flat", the "Stompin' Grounds" below the "I" on the mountain, "Little Mountain", campin', huntin', and just the "quick little drives out west"..."A quick ride around th' block" we used to callous it...Those who went know exactly what I'm talkin' 'bout... Though I'm mostly not able to get out an' about much anymore, and don't see our old "crowd of friends" very often, I still have many great memories, of times with the best group of friends one could ask for, guarded in a special memory bank (some banks have been inadvertently deleted for some reason...). Sincerely,
Dear John & family,
We are very sorry for your loss, and we hope you will find comfort in special memories of Bill.
