Our condolences to the whole family ~ one special memory that comes to mind is when our Women's Softball team was playing in state finals in Traverse City. We had back-to-back games and Pam's Mom & Dad were so kind to go get food & drink for the whole team! Cherish your memories of Bill. He was a great man. Judy Pearce & Janice McKay

I'm so sorry I missed the funeral, Dort & family. I take kemo once a week on Mondays. This week it kept me down with a splash of flu. I miss out on a lot of life because of my diseases. My thoughts are with you. Mr. Corning was in Hackley rehab the same time my Uncle Bill Krehn. Unfortunately, I was there too for a surgery. I didn't get to visit anybody for being bed ridden there. Dort, you dad lived a good long life. My Uncle Bill is home finally, but eating and talking is not a possibility yet. Thank God your dad suffers no more. Bless him & his departed loved ones. Love, April Rice & family.
