Judy and family- I am sorry to hear of Bill's passing. It seems like so many of the familiar faces from the salebarn are no longer with us! You are all in my thoughts.

I've been thinking about you so much today Grandpa, and I honestly don't know why. I am taking a break from all my homework because I am so stressed out, and I figured writing to you may lessen some of the stress. It has been so hard with you gone, and often on my walk home I find myself dialing grandma to ask how you are doing, then I realize that I can't ask anymore and it makes me so

I worked with Bill at Sivyer Steel for many years, and knew him as a hard worker, always could be counted on for that "extra mile". I don't know his family, but you have our sincere condolences in your time of grief. It is obvious from what has been said of him that his life was well lived.

Dear Judy and family,
Janelle and I received a call over the weekend of Bill's passing.
We were saddened to hear this and send our deepest sympathy to all.
We lost touch over the years but remember Bill as a great guy, with a winning smile and great sense of humor.
We know he will be deeply missed by his family, friends and relatives.
May he rest in peace and peace to you all at this time of sorrow.
With love, Bill's cousins:
Janelle (Steward) Soenksen
Bev (Steward) La Bombard or "Stew" as Bill called me!!!!

Bill has always been as much of a grandpa to me as my own just like it's always been hard to really distinguish the line separating the Clay family from the Steward family all these years. You all mean so much to me and all of my family. I'm so sorry I couldn't be there with you all this past weekend but please know that didn't mean you weren't weighing heavily on my mind. I'm sure that goes for any

We want to extend our deepest sympathy. Jeff and I have many memories as a cousin and as co worker to your children. I am truly sorry that family has gotten lost over the years. But as children we had great fun on the farm at Uncle Rudy and Aunt Ella's the ducks the chickens and the cows. Also the card games on birthdays. We will truly miss him and send our love to his family. Thank you for being part of our lives.

Dear Dad,
You are the lifeline to my heart. Always standing beside and behind me. Dad, I always knew you were there, no matter the issue. Did not always like what you had to say, but you tried to point me in the right direction and accepted how I handled your advice. You are the kindest,most gentle person that life ever shared with all. TWO WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU, STRONG AND HUMBLE. So many many memories, but one that
