Guest Book Highlights

June 23, 2017 "I remember when I was a little girl and would never miss seeing him on TV. I am now 60+and still remember how funny he was.
Bill Dana will always be in my thoughts and old time memories.
Jose' Jemeniez will live in my heart forever.
My condolenses to the family and friends." - Ava Pearson (Springfield, MO)
June 22, 2017 "Over his long career, he made millions of people laugh. Some of those millions had troubles that, during their laughter, they momentarily forgot. He was a healer, specializing in the Funny Bone.
I recall, as a child, sitting on the family sofa and laughing at the deadpan responses of Jose Jimenez. My mother was Belgian, and had a thick accent herself, so perhaps she identified with Jose and his struggles with English. My parents would never have allowed any kind of racism, but they didn't see Bill's character as demeaning. Laughing at yourself is a gentle art that reflects a gentle soul. Bill, that gentle soul, made us laugh." - (Dugway, UT)
June 22, 2017 "May your family be comforted with all your wonderful memories ...looking at his face for 60 years still makes me smile. I hope he's yucking it up above." - Betsy Paul (Chantilly, VA)
June 22, 2017 "What a good long and wonderful life Bill Dana enjoyed! So many cannot say the same. May he forever be in our hearts and in God's book of life."
June 21, 2017 "I am so sorry to hear of Bills passing. He brought such joy to our home with his writing and comedy. I have missd him over the years." - John Price (Lenoir City, TN)
