Not sure what to say?

We were saddened to hear about the loss of Bill Smith. Our trips to Palm Desert were greatly enhanced by dinners at his Ironwood home, replete with his impressive Western art collection, magnificient views, and warm welcome. We're sorry, Annette. Bill will be greatly missed.

Bill & Annette at Emily's Graduation from UST in May, 2013

It was always a pleasure doing business with Bill- he was highly intelligent and he helped me gain valuable insights in our conversations.

Dear Annette; Such a wonderful man; he will be missed by all at Ironwood who knew him through golf; fitness; and his community work. Such a loss and we pray for you and your family. Jean and Russ Blomberg

Sincere condolences to the family for your loss and may God comfort you during this difficult time.
Psalm 147:3.

Bill was a beautiful soul, a treasure of a man who listened intently to all and was everyone's friend. God's blessings to Annette and family as you find your way with grateful memories. Our prayers are with you.

We send our deepest sympathies to you, Annette and Graham, and Smith families. It was always our pleasure when Bill would visit the gallery. He will be missed!

A great fellow member at IWCC. We will miss him.

Dearest Annette, We are just broken hearted at Bill's passing. It is really hard to express how much we will miss him and our wonderful times with the two of you. Thank God for all our memories of a sweet, kind man and those we will now make with you in the future. Hugs, Carol-Ann and Al Olson
