    Dear Polly,
    Reading about Bill’s death brought back so many memories of our good
    times together over fifty years ago.
    I extend my sympathy to you and your family at this sad time.

      Thanks Rubye. It is good to hear from you and hope you are doing well. Bill was subject to aspirating pneumonia and this one took him. He had dementia for years, so we had really lost the real Bill a year ago. I had cared for him at home for over a year and he had enjoyed being at home. Again, it is good to hear from you even under these circumstances. Stay well and keep in touch. Polly

  2. Jerry Wolford says:

    Hepner Family,
    Many years ago I had the pleasure of working in the flower shop with Chuck, Michelle and the rest of the crew. Bill was a bright spot in the team. That was a wonderful experience for me and I enjoyed getting to know Bill. Sending warm wishes to all of you. He was a sweet spirit. I will always remember. Kim

    Dear Polly, Chuck and Susie
    So sorry for your loss and missing Bill’s funeral. I didn’t hear about Bill’s death until Tuesday afternoon. I have fond memories of Bill having worked with him at the Woodstock Post Office for 20 plus years. What I remember most about Bill is he liked to talk about most anything. My prayers go out to Polly and family and wish them the best of health.
