May God be with you and give you peace and wonderful memories.

We want to let you know how much it meant to us to see Both of you at Dianes service, we appreciated the wondeful things Bill said. God Bless You & Your Family.

  6. Janie, I have been blessed by Bill and your friendship with me and my family. My favorite memory of Bill was him insisting on being on the bottom with me on top for a two person sled ride down a hill near Breckenridge during a singles weekend. God bless you both. Bob Yarberry

  7. Dearest Jane, Greg and family,
    Words cannot express how filled my heart is with sadness. Bill was a gift to us directly from God. What a joy to have known him. He shared his love with family and friends. I will always treasure his thoughtful caring ways and infectious smile. With love and prayers that God will give you the strength needed in the days ahead.

  8. When we hugged goodbye just ten days before you left this lifetime, my parting words were, “I’ll see you again sometime, somewhere.” We both understood….
