    To Bill and the whole family. It's never easy to say goodbye to your loved ones, but think about the great fun times you've all had together. I can see you all around a table playing cards into the night. We have enjoyed getting to know all of you.. Sue and I had good talks when you guys went out fishing. She was easy to talk with. We will miss her too. Loren and I wish we could come up for the service. We would be there if we didn't have all these health issues going on. Take care and we'll be thinking about you.
