    Hi guys. I am SO SORRY that I couldn’t be at the service today. I want you to know that so many of my childhood memories involve your Dad and you guys! Showing us how to hunt rabbits and squirrels with our 22’s (ha ha), piling in the back of tje truck to go fishing at dusk, oh and catching the grasshoppers for bait with a fly swatter and milk jug! Working the cattle, riding the go carts and riding mowers that Bill was always tinkering with. I wouldn’t trade those memories for the world. And then after Grandma passed, your Dad would still come down and spend time with my Dad. That meant the world to him. I’d go out and find them cutting wood or jury rigging their equipment to go put up hay! HaHa
    You can bet that they are in heaven now checking on the cattle and discussing the weather! With Grandma and Grandpa and mom and dad and Bosco and Dolly and Ray and Ralph and Cleda……You can bet they are having a great old time!!
    It’s so sad to lose him but believe me. It’s just temporary. He’s not hurting or sad. He’s sitting up there looking down, wishing you joy and happiness, and looking forward to that day when we will all be together again sharing a cold watermelon in the front yard at Grandmas house! Love you guys. 🙂

    So sorry to hear the passing of Uncle Bill. I have many fond memories of him and your family. I like to think of him joining his family and at peace. Wonderful memories of the Smith farm.

    I am so sorry for your loss. May “the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort and soothe your heart. His promises, found in the Holy Scriptures, can offer much hope. It assures us at John 5:28,29 that our loved ones will be remembered and brought back to life in the resurrection. Please allow God’s Word to strengthen you and help you to endure this most difficult time.
