Although we never met William, Warren, you became a part of our lives many years ago. We know the pain of losing your parents and we wish you good memories of them. Take care.

I am indeed blessed to be a part of this family. I will miss my uncle Bill as he has joined his brother, my father, and the rest of this wonderful family who are now in the arms of our Lord. This family has left me with such wonderful memories and, with those, we will never be far apart. Ann Vetter
