My thoughts go out to the entire family. Bill was a huge influence in my life and no one will ever make me laugh the way he did. Bill and Peggy are together smiling down on us all and that is truly reassuring.

We would like to express our sincerest sympathies to all of you during this time of bereavement. We always enjoyed speaking with Bill as our "tax man," as well as with Peggy during her vigorous walks up the neighborhood hill. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

My deepest sympathies for the loss of your husband and brother. I use to live a couple houses down. My sister and I played with Dreama and Billy. Barbara was older than us. We have fond memories of our childhood together. Again, my deepest sympathies...Dianne Watts Johnson
