  2. I only feared Bill Cokeley until I met him in mid December 1966. It was a requirement that if you walked his daughter home everyday, you had meet him and did so at the front door of the green house on Jackson. I saw online Bill had passed. Marge, you were the last person I saw when I left for KC in 1985. Mom, Dad, my aunt and brother-in-law all have been at Montgomery-Steward the past 8 years. I have always remembered you all.

  3. GRANDMA AND FAMILY: WE ARE SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS!! WE WERE SO LUCKY TO BE APART OF YOUR LIVES AND WILL NEVER FORGET IT!! GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU!!! TAMMY AND SONS.

  4. Marge,we were sorry to hear about Bill–we have so many great memories playing aggravation and hayrack rides with you and friends. He will be missed but we know he is in a better place. Ron and Betty Baker
