    Billy was my first cousin. My dad (Herb) and Joe were brothers. When I lived in Mayville I had a Baldock family reunion and Billy came and brought a beautiful and delicious bakery cake! We had such a nice day and Billy enjoyed visiting with all his cousins.

    My condolences on the loss of your brother and uncle. If there was a funeral card made up I would appreciate one for my family album.

    Thank you,

    You perhaps don’t know me, but I am Lois Hovden’s sister and she has often spoken of her friends, Joanne and Wayne Blanchard, so I feel your loss as does she. It is not easy saying a final good-bye to someone we love, but knowing that is what God has planned for each of us, may you find comfort in the knowledge that Bill has answered God’s call and waits with his parents for a family reunion in the future.
