  1. ON BEHALF OF MY EXTENDED FAMILY I WOULD LIKE TO OFFER OUR SYMPATHY. MY MOM, RUTH VANDUSEN, WAS ABOUT A THIRD COUSIN TO BILL. I DON\’T KNOW IF YOU KNOW HER BY THAT NAME, BUT HER AND MY AUNT MARYJANE ARE BEADLES. I APOLOGIZE, BUT I DON\’T REMEMBER BILL THAT WELL, BUT I DO REMEMBER MARY. MY MOM HAS ALWAYS TRIED TO KEEP TRACK OF THE FAMILY AND WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU KNEW YOU WERE IN HER PRAYERS.

  2. Dear Grace,

    We were saddened to hear of Bill\’s passing. I (Rick) worked at GRS with Bill, and he was one of the best guys to work with, both from his knowledge of the business, and helpful friendly attitude. My association with Bill continued being part of the Stoic73 investment club. He was always a pleasure to be with and we enjoyed getting to know both of you at the club meetings and dinners. We are blessed to have known Bill, and please know that he, you, and your family our in our thoughts and prayers.

    Sorry we could not be at the service due to a medical procedure.

    Peace,

    Rick & Jo Ann Scheffer
