"Can't believe how much I still miss Dad.  We had so many great times together.  He was such a great inspiration to me.  The only good thing about this 2nd anniversary since his passing is we are 2 years closer to seeing him all healthy and well with our precious Mom and our Heavenly Father.  We all have something to look forward to.  Every time I turn the news on I know it won't be long."

"Still missing Dad so much, he was my Rock, My Inspiration, My Hero.   It was one year ago today, when I had to tell him goodbye.   My inner selfish nature just didn’t want to let him go, but his Heavenly Father with much compassion, knew it was time and he was ready to go.  He had mentioned the most exciting day of his life was not far, when he would be reunited with his darling Doris."

"The first time I met Bill was at the fellowship dinner at our church. My wife and I sat with Bill and his wife and we were quit impressed with his wit and friendlyness. From that day forward Bill and I became very good friends. It is hard to believe that he has been gone for a year. He is greatly missed. See you in heaven, Bill."

"Hello Bill:
Our prayers are with you and your family.
I worked at your Dad's office in Carrollton when I was a teen. He shared his time and talent to insure that our dental needs were addressed. I've often told my wife and kids of your Father's kindness and generosity. I along with my brothers James and John truly valued your friendship. May God continue to bless you and your family."

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Aren't you fortunate to have had him on this earth for such a long time. What a great life Dr. Trinkner had. He was at one time a pillar of the Carrollton Community as well. We are truly losing the "greatest generation". May you know God's comfort.

"I am so sorry to hear about the loss of "Grandpa Trinkner". He was always so kind to me. No matter how trivial the subject, he listened and was interested in anything I had to say. I can still see him carrying that chainsaw down the driveway, cutting back all the limbs and branches. For some reason that amused ( and kind of scared me! LOL). I guess my fondest memory was the day of Mike's funeral,"

"I got to know Bill by attending the same church. We had pot luck dinner together with his wife and my wife. I loved his sense of humor. He was always a great person to be around. When Joe Ring and I visited him in his home after he had remarried, he began to tell us some very interesting stories about his early years. I for one will miss seeing my friend Bill in church. God bless."

"Dad, Dad, Dad, its been a month and Wow, am I ever missing you.  You were such an inspiration to so many.  I only wish you would have known how many people's lives you touched.  I thank the Lord everyday for blessing me with such a loving, thoughtful, compassionate and Godly father and Grandad to my kids.  And the icing on the cake God blessed me with you as my best friend for 67 years.."
