Guest Book Highlights

June 26, 2017 "Condolences to Mrs. Dana and family.
I laughed with everyone else at the Jimenez caracter.
He lived a long life making people smile.
May the God of all comfort strengthen you at this time." - (Chicago)
June 25, 2017 "Wonderful memories of growing up in suburban Minneapolis and watching Mr. Dana on The Ed Sullivan Show.

A wonderful performer, a talented writer, Bill Dana was a American cultural institution and his passing should be receiving more national attention than it has, but as those running the nation's newsrooms become progressively younger...

Nashville has been lucky to have had Bill Dana in our midst, during recent years, I hope he viewed his time here as years well spent.

May Bill Dana's memory be for a blessing." - Stacy Harris
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)
