We know he was also a wonderful grandpa. And we know how much you will miss him. But now he will be able to be with his sweetheart in heaven. Let us know if there's anything we can do for you or your family. We love you, the Williams family

Danelle and family, We can't tell you how sorry we are that you lost your dad this week. Just know you are in our hearts and we are thinking and praying about you every day. We love you and we think of you as family.

It is always difficult to loose a loved one. I hope that all of the services and arrangements tomorrow will go well and remind all who attend of the wonderful person that Kay is. I regret that I will not be able to attend, but wanted to express my sympathy. I hope and pray that you all will be comforted. I do find joy in thinking that Kay and Leona are together again. For those who may not know me, I am Vivian and Herb's son Don.
