Your family has my deepest sympathy. I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Bill was loved and he will be dearly missed. Though now you are grieving, please remember that you are not alone. Psalm 46:1 says, "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress." Pray to Him for strength. He will really help you (Isaiah 41:10) because He cares for you (1 Peter 5:7).

I am so sorry to hear of uncle bills passing. My fondest memories of him is playing progressive rummy with him and aunt Laura every Friday night when I lived in Pendleton. Always had coffee and great dessert. And I loved his smile

My deepest sympathy to all of you. Due to the not so long ago passing of Mark,my husband, I won't be able to attend the service but want you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. I will always remember the laughter at Uncle Bill and Aunt Laura's. Uncle Bill's laugh was so contagious, it always gave me a warm feeling and smile.

Dear Stella & Dave,

Our sincere condolences on the passing of your dad Stella. Although we didn't know him personally we felt like we did through you. You two are the best neighbors anyone could have and when something affects you we feel it too. Stay strong and remember God is in charge and he loves you.
