    To all the family, I worked with Stella for many years at Werner’s and remember Bill talking about the family when we would go to lunch. Julie, you would not remember but I purchased some dolls from Stella that were yours and still have them in the same boxes. Many good memories of Bill and Stella, lunches with the Werner group, Mary Ellen Kidd, Marilyn Dambacher, Carol Noble. We have lost touch over the years. My sincere sympathy to all the family. I will keep all of you in my prayers for strength and support at this difficult time.

    John and I had the privledge of meeting Bill and Stella thru our daughter Birdy. they were at all of the Beck functions, especially Alexa’s birthday parties. He was such a wonderful man and friend to Brad and Birdy. Bill told Birdy not to wish him back but to cherish all of their great memories that they made together. I am very proud of my daughter for the way that she stepped up and helped Bill right to the end. I am so glad that Bill was such a good friend to Birdy, Brad and Lexi but to John and I as well. I will miss that every time I saw Bill he would say HI MOM. RIP our dear friend. Patricia Gilmore

    To the Barrett family,

    I have been a co-work of Andy’s for many years. Although I did not know his dad personally, I wanted to make sure the family knew they were in my thoughts and prayer!.
