    Dear Williams family my prayers will be with you in this time of sorrow. I remember Mr. Williams from my youth, he was part of my village. Most of the memories are good, once in awhile he scared me when he caught Willie and I doing what we shouldn’t be doing. I lost my mother last year at age 93, she was ready and I hope your father was also. I am in Frankenmuth until Wednesday, Mike if your still around call me. I’m not in the book my Nos. are 906 399 7044 or 906 235 1359 or 906 553 7362. I will have a mass said for your dad. Butch and Judy BrunellePS Your dad was the only mailman I ever called MR
