Dear Treva and Randay, I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your Father. May he rest in peace. My thoughts and prayers go out to you at this difficult time. May you find comfort in knowing how much others care for you! God bless you!! Love, Kay
Bill was a great person with a ready smile and an active sense of humor. It was great to see Bill either at the auction barn in Kingsville or at cattlemen’s association meetings prior to his declining health. Bill will be sorely missed.
Marie and family –
Jim and I are thinking of you and sending our sincere sympathy in
Bill’s passing. Stay the strong woman you are and find that peace
which passeth all understanding in the days ahead.
Dear Anna Marie & Family,
