    Dear Hocking Family,

    We are very sorry for your loss. We will always remember Bill when he would come in and have coffee with his buddies in the morning. We affectionately labeled them “The Coffee Guys” not very original, but we always loved seeing them.

    God bless him and your whole family.

    Mena and Sostine and the Roma family!

    Mike and family,
    Please accept our condolences for your loss.
    Know that you do not grieve alone.
    Friends are there to share in your grief
    and to “lighten the load” that you bear.

    Celebrate the life and take solace in the
    fact that you were enriched by the opportunity
    that you had to share that life.
    Paul and Deborah Malewski
