Dear Bill and family,

I use to be your parents neighbors for years and babysit you when you were little. Your mom was so sweet and fun to visit with when we'd be outside doing things. We both were busy and on the go somewhere but always say hello and see how the other one was doing. I look over at your house when I come home to visit and have fond memories of them living next door. I always thought you had a neat house it was fun being your kid sitter I call it. I'm sorry for your loss and know that I'm thinking of you and wish I could come to the service but will be getting ready for a mission trip heading to Minnesota that week. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Bill.
Mike & Lynda (Vaughan) Longhofer
