It's been 6 years ago today since you've been in a better place, but I think of you every day! I see Mallard ducks and I remember the towels and shower curtain you had with ducks on them. I love you Dad, I think you'd be proud of me. I finally finished school, got a teaching job, and can pay bills! Next up, grad school! Every time someone asks me about my tattoo I share a story about you. I will wear your thumbprint necklace today! Love always, Carrie Ellen

Bill never wanted to make a "fuss" on his birthday. We celebrated many of his birthdays with just a birthday cake at home. He was a very private person with a great subtle sense of humor. He always liked new cars. He was a good father to David and Carrie.

Bill was a good father. Evidenced by the lives of his son and daughter. I am very proud to be their mother.

Bill and I were Patternmaker apprentices together from 59-63. When the apprentice instructor was having a bad day, he would come over to Bill and me and threaten to fire us for some rediculous reason. Later Bill would comensurate with me and say the happyest time of his life was back on the farm shoveling cow manure. However I didn't have a farm to return to. I'll miss our talks.

William, My one and only brother.What a sad day it was when I learned you had left me behind. So sorry I could not be there to tell you goodbye. My heart is broken and sad. I will miss you and will share with your children and grandchildren memories of our days of just being children in the country. Love you,Barbara

I enjoyed so much our dance group. Bill and I were members of the executive board which started single dances in this area. People still talk about how great those dances were. Bill was a good person. Marcie Hagge

I met Bill on a double blind date in September, 1962, when I entered nursing school. I actually asked him to marry me when I was on affiliation in Washington, D.C. He proposed to me in my grandmother's driveway. I was so proud of the beautiful diamond ring he gave me. I loved him and will always respect him as a great father and grandfather.

Bill, I still remember your first night at Divorce Support, thank God for Ray! We traveled down a lot of roads in search of someone new to dance with. We sure met some interesting people along the way. I'll miss your humor and political views. I will miss you at the gun shows, and Cabela's. I always knew you had my back when we got into trouble.

Daddy, you were the best father I could ask for. You had a great sense of humor and you left a big impression on everyone that knew you. I thank you for the sense of peace and comfort that you brought me, from your support and your love. I will make sure that you live on through memories and stories that I will share with family, friends, and future generations to come. Love, Carrie Ellen
