  1. We will always remember the joy we shared at the wedding together. The joining of two families is a wonderful occasion. We enjoyed the cook outs and conversations too. You were a very special man and will leave a lasting legacy. Rest in peace Bill.

  2. Bill, my heart is breaking for you and your family. I can’t even pretend to know the pain of what you’re going through. I remember our last conversation in your booth at the U of R when you told me how happy your dad was in his apartment. The minute I saw the story about your dad on the news, my heart just sank. Please accept my condolences to you and your family. He will forever live in your hearts.

  3. My grandmother lived at Fleming point for a little while, and while I do not think that their paths crossed, my heart breaks for you and your family. Know that the community mourns with you and that we are all praying for you!

  4. Debbie and Joe,
    Thank-you both for your thoughts. Dad was a very happy person and he was comfy in his apartment. It’s been a difficult time but we are doing well thanks to kind people such as you. Dad will always live in our hearts as you say and we will always remember the good times too. Thanks again, Lisa and Bill Brodner

  5. It was heartbreaking to learn of Mr. Brodner’s passing … ‘Mr. Brodner’ as I and my four brothers all knew him as from living next door for so many years while growing up. I recall him being a very kind, quiet gentleman throughout all those years. Our deepest sympathy goes out to all of you on your loss of a wonderful man.

  6. Thank-you for your kind words and prayers. It is through kind people like you that remind us….. that time will heal our hearts and brighter days are ahead. Thanks again, Lisa and Bill Brodner

  7. Thank-you Susan for your kind words. You are right on for Mr. Brodner being a quiet and kind person. I know he enjoyed many great conversations with your father over the years (as Bill and I have as well). I hope your Dad is doing well and taking care. Thanks again for your sweet message. -Lisa and Bill Brodner
