Not sure what to say?

You have my deepest sympathy for your loss of your father and grandfather, I will keep you in my prayers. Although I did not particularly know Willard, he was a distant relative through my mother Pauline E. Burris. It is very difficult to lose a loved one no matter how long they have been with you. God Bless your family.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to Ron and family on the passing of Willard. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. May he rest in peace. God Bless, Carol and Mark Beck
