I am so sorry to hear of Bill's passing... I have many good memories of him and Jeannie when your family lived next to our farm in Stockholm Center as I babysat a lot for Becky and Philip and later on for Tiffany in Parishville. He always had a great smile, kind way and twinkle in his eye. My father thought the world of him as they shared rides to/from work for years, he commented on what a good man he was. I hope your memories will help ease your loss.. With love, Cheri Hagelund.

We were so sad to hear of the passing of Bill. We are grateful that we got to meet and know Bill at Diamond. He was such a soft spoken man but with a great sense of humor. He will be missed!

Our deepest condolences to his family. We hope the memories of happy times help comfort you and get you through this difficult period. We hope it is a comfort knowing that he is with Jean again and hopefully out riding together down Jeannie's Trail at Diamond!
