Sincere sympathy to the Kline family. We first met Bill as a cook at Markle Health care where my mother was a resident. Bill would go fishing and bring his fish to the facility and cook for residents and family's (only 13 residents at that time and I believe it was privately owned as well). He was a super friendly man. Thoughts and prayers to the family and friends who knew Bill so well.

Bill was a quiet man with a great sense of humor and an easy smile. He will be missed. What hope we enjoy when we know the separation is only temporary. This is not goodbye but see you later, Bill.
May you, Bill's family, experience the peace of God's nearness during the days and weeks ahead.

Steve,

I am so sorry for your loss. I'm sure he was a good man as you have always spoken so highly of him. Take care and have peace in his passing to go home and be with his Heavenly Father.

Debbie,
We wanted you to know that we are thinking of you at this time.
When your dad worked at Markle Health Care he was so good to my dad. He wanted to fix food that my dad would eat. I appreciated him taking time & effort to help my dad.
We are unable to get to the funeral home but wanted you to know that you & your family have our sympathy.
