A Grateful Thanks

To our friends in Arbon Valley:

Our thanks to the Arbon Branch for allowing us to use their church building, and to Bishop Ward for his attention before, during and after Willard’s services. He was so kind and thoughtful.

We offer our special thanks to the ladies of the Relief Society who know what to do to make things go smoothly with the meal. So many small jobs that go unnoticed. THANK YOU!!!

A grateful thanks to the men at the Arbon Valley Highway Dept. for their work at the cemetery. They did such a great job.

Our Sincere Thanks,
The Willard Bradley Family

Dear Friends,

I was especially distressed because of a miscommunication. The word went out that I didn’t want calls and/or visits after Willard’s passing. Nothing could have been farther from the truth. I apoligize if anyone felt that I didn’t want to see or hear from you. I have lived here for 44 years and feel like I have many friends. Please feel free to call or visit any time, you are always welcome.

I do appreciate the many cards I recieved and for so many who attended Willard’s services. More folks remembered him than I expected. It’s great to live in a Community like Arbon.
