Dear Pat, Mike, John, Betsy & Betty,
We are sorry to hear of Bill's passing, please accept our deepest condolences. Maybe 40 yrs ago I got to know the Bolinger family. I helped do chores while Bill was "layed up" for awhile. One of the nicest family I have ever known, and what a coincedence they are farmers, the "salt" of the earth. Every time since then, when we saw each other, it was a pleasure to speak with them. Just SO nice! I did takeaway one thing Bill taught me, when I was helping them, that was at breakfast, EVERY morning, we had to have a bowl of Corn Flakes scattered with a topping of Grape Nuts to start. To this day I still enjoy that combination, thanks to Bill! Hope that story made you all smile. He was a good, hard working man. Along with Pat, they passed that on to their children! Keep it going John! Again so sorry for your loss, the "Hill" won't be the same. Larry & Karyn Briggs
