I am sorry for your loss. At such times words that truly comfort are hard to think of , the Bible has these comforting words found at Philippians 4:6&7. The Bible can be a source of comfort. May the family keep in mind that God the Hearer of Prayer (Psalms 65:2) Promise to help through these difficult times, if you turn to him in Prayer. You can read these scriptures online online at http://www.jw.org

My husband Dan King (Doozer) drove with Uncle Will. When you seen one you ALWAYS seen the other one. They were the best of friends! I’m so sorry we missed the services. Dan & I really wanted to attend, but thought this would be just as well. Uncle Will never knew a stranger. Such a good, loving & giving man!!! We sure loved him!! Dan & I will miss having a good talk with him. What an awesome man! Heaven is celebrating him entering in with Little Boss! What a party!!! God bless the whole family!!!

I meant Will through my dad, Lynn Marling. He was such a good friend to my dad and was so much fun hanging with the gang in my parent’s garage on Riverside Drive. Will was so wonderful after my mother died in February of 2014 and I got to know him and his great sense of humor during my stay there. He will be missed by so many. Thoughts and prayers for your family at this time .
