Not sure what to say?

Liz and family,

We are terribly saddened to learn of Bill's death. Our visits with you during our nine years in NMB were always a highlight of the winter season. Bill was always smiling and outwardly happy. His faith was great and we hope yours will sustain you as you grieve. Our memories will always feature Bill smiling.

I am so sorry to read about your Dad's death. It has been many years since I have seen you three boys but it brought back memories of when you lived on Maiden Lane and I would babysit you on choir nights. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. Mary Jane Burks Collins

Dear Liz, Bills sons, and Liz's daughters:
Paul and I were saddened to hear about Bills passing. Such a nice guy, fun, friendly, and good with a joke, and a helping hand.
He will be missed by many.

I am terribly saddened to hear of your Father's passing. I know that he was very important to you and is missed by his many friends and relatives.

Dear Mrs. Parr,
I was so sorry to learn of Mr. Parr's passing from THE SUN NEWS. I only met you both twice, but that was enough to know that he was a sweetheart. It is comforting to me to know that your family enjoyed many fun years here at 1632 27th Avenue. I have made copies of the obit from the paper and plan to pass them out to the closest neighbors.
Praying for you,
Kim Hobbs

Dear Liz, Jessie and I read of Bill's passing with deep regret, but many good memories. Bill and I will have to wait a while to play that game of golf we've been talking about. Take care and know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Jessie and Bob Rusinko

Liz and Family,
May God surround you with His infinite grace during this difficult time. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.
Peg and Mack Warner

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family
God Bless You
Mike & Bonnie

sorry about hearing about your thoughts go out for you and your family
