God has taken another Angel into his loving arms. I will always remember Willmars wonderful smile and such a gentle man always a kind word to say and he so loved to visit. I shall always cherish the wonderful time we had at Gladmar Park celebrating his 80th. birthday and I had the honor to do the meal for such a wonderful event. He was so pleased and I am sure overwhelmed by such a wonderful turnout of family and friends. To the family I express my deepest sympathy and you will always be in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless you at such a difficult time.

Willmar was a very pleasant and friendly fellow who always took time to visit. He had great compassion for others. Many times he could be found visiting people in the Marian Home in Radville. Sincere sympathy to his family.
