My sincere condolences to you and your family.  May your wonderful memories give you strength and peace.

My deepest sympathy for your loss. I know how close you ( Carolyn & Debbie) were to your Dad and Kristen to her Grandfather. I did not know until 10 mins ago or I certainly would have come to pay my respects. My heart felt condolences.

Every time I saw Bill sitting outside with June, he hailed me and told me something funny or asked me a ridiculous question that made me laugh. He was sassy and dear and I will miss him.

My sincerest condolences for your loss.  Bill was my neighbor and my friend, and I will miss our conversations, the jokes he shared and our visits.  It was always fun to surprise him with his favorite corn on the cob and cantalope every season. 


Sending our sympathy on the passing of your father.  Thinking of you.


I am so sorry for your loss. I will miss your dad on my visits to Zanesville. I will miss him meeting up with us for dinner, we always had a good time. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
