Not sure what to say?

Christine and Emily,

I am immensely sorry for your loss. It was indeed a pleasure to work for Mr. Eckert, as I did in the latter part of his career. He was the kindest and most generous person I ever knew. I, too, enjoyed our visits and his wonderful sense of humor.

Christine & Emily, Just wanted to let you know you both are in my thoughts and prayers. I think of you all often, so many of my childhood memories include the 3 of you. Celebrating New Years, Steeler Games, parents playing cards while Michael, Emily & I played...the list goes on and on. I have never smelled the scent of cigar without being reminded of Bill & putting a smile on my face. Love you Both & hope that all your wonderful memories give you comfort. Much Love XOXO

Bill and I were good friends in MS and HS at Crafton High. I knew him as an early achiever as an athlete and a very bright young man. He also always was a happy guy and fun to be around. I saw him last at our fiftieth reunion and got to get caught up on some of the vital things in his life. Our paths went different directions after High School, but I thought of him often. My condolences to the family. I'm sure he will be missed.

God bless you and may he walk with you through the days to come.

Christine & Emily...
Know that I and Jim are sending prayers.
I first met Bill when I was young... as he employed Aunt Marie . I always thought it "funny" that she had worked for the firm only a few years less than Bill and Bill had lived.
I worked for Bill when clearing Marie's cousin's home and then found that he, you and Emily were beautiful people.
God Bless Bill.
Thoughts are with You and Emily.

My prayers are with you Christine and Emily. I can still remember raiding the M&M bowl and all the wonderful nights playing pinochle with Mr. Eckert. God Bless

Words cannot express the loss of one you love.
My deepest sympathy to Emily and Christine.
I first met Mr eckert while caring for Emily. I enjoyed our visits and conversations. Mr Eckert was a wonderful person with a great sense of humour and his friendly smile.
The entire family is in my thoughts and prayers.
