Dear Bonnie and family, I am sincerely sorry for your loss. I was going to come to the viewing but I came down with bronchitis. I dont want to share my germs with anyone. I know you will be busy talking with everyone who knew him. God bless you and your whole family. Sincerely Bill and Veronica Schell
