To the Waller Family

I was saddened to hear of the passing of your father. I met him a few years ago when I became one of his customers.
He was a very kind and funny person.
My thoughts and prayers are with you during your time of bereavement.

I will miss you Uncle Bill. You taught this city girl a lot about farming when she decided to leave the bright city lights behind for farming in Tennessee! You put up with all my organic gardening talk and free spirit lifestyle and I felt loved and respected by you. Always loved talking to you about the old days and visiting you and Aunt Helen and my cousins Karen & Mark over the many years. A lot of history there. May you rest in peace. Dad, your old buddy, and I send our love and know that we will hold you in hearts forever.
