From: Sue and Gerry Clack
Relation: A Dear Friend

Dear Gail, Jim and Family
Words cannot express how very sorry we are in the loss of your dear Dad Bill.
He was a great Gentleman, unique and special in his own way, always had a kind word, cheerful with that Gentle smile and will be sadly missed by us all.

Don’t think of him as gone away
His journey’s just begun
Life holds so many facets
This earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting
in a place of warmth and comfort
and think of him as giving
In the hearts of those he touched
For nothing loved is ever lost
and he was loved so much.

Treasure those special memories
close tom your heart
With love and affection
Sue and Gerry

Sending my condolences.
Mr. Littlejohn was such a nice man.
He will be fondly remembered by all who knew him.

From: Diana Bright
Relation: Bill was the husband of my husband's cousin Pam.

Bill was a wonderful man and a good friend. He was a generous and caring person, always ready to lend a hand. Bill helped us when we were building our house with the deck and painting. John and I enjoyed his apricots and cherries that we canned each year. His bright smile and ready laugh filled the room with warmth and welcome. His was a life well-lived.
