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!
