Aldean, Girls, Murry.
So sorry to hear of your loss. Sad times.
Cherish the memories of your time together.
I remember Mr Penner from picking berries at your place, the odd appearance at Sears, and visiting back and forth with my parents. I remember his sparkling eyes and easy smile. A very gentle and kind man.
Sending love and hugs to you, Aldean. My condolences. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.

So sad to hear of your loss. I spent several hot summer days with Uncle Willard in the fields picking rocks and sharpening fence posts. He was very patient with me and always....I mean always had a kind word to say. He will be deeply missed by many.

Dear Aunt Aldean, and cousins,
We were saddened to hear the loss of uncle Willard, husband, father, sibling and uncle to many nephew's and niece's. Many fond memories of the farm, such as helping drive the tractor... which I had no clue what I was doing.... but finally got the hang of it. Not sure if I was any help.... however uncle was patient and kind during my learning curve!! I would always like to tease uncle, he always had a rebuttal… I think we both enjoyed the back and forth, never hard feelings, but lots of chuckles.

May the support of family, friends and the many memories that will be shared help you all get through this difficult time. Lots of hugs are sent your way.
