Our deepest sympathy for Betty, Gordan, Charlotte, Harold and their spouses, children and grandchildren. I wish we could have been their to share your sorrow but also to share a lot of memories of life on the farm, spending many a Sunday together as neighbors, ball games, our experiences riding the bus and many sleep overs. Your Dad was a great man and will be missed. May you loving memories of him get you through you time of sorrow. I would have loved to see everyone and meet all your children and grandchildren. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Love: Marj (Bichel) and Joe Boxer and Family

My sincere condolences to Betty, Gordon, Charlotte, Harold and all their children and grand children. I grew up next door to the Bichels. We were all cousins and i remember having a lot of fun with you. It was just a short walk from our farm to your farm. Willy will be missed. I must say your family started out as only 3 but it has grown. Family is great and you have a great family. Love to you all. Julie (Bichel) and Al McBride

Our sincerest condolences Aunt Betty and family, you are in our thoughts and prayers. One of my favorites quotes is from Emily Dickinson, "Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality". Wishing you many loving memories to hold in your heart.

My condolences to Auntie Betty, Gordon, Charlotte & Bruce, Harold & Rose, and everyone in the family. It’s been so long since I’ve seen most of you. I remember most the fun we had, as kids, visiting great uncle and auntie, whether it was at the farm or in the new big house in town.
