Just saw Mr. Schatzman’s obituary. Wanted to extend sincere sympathy to family members and especially LaVerne.
She was my Sunday School Teacher years ago as well as in Runyan’s choir together. I remember the times she and her husband did many happy events with our youth group. Will keep you in thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.

Dear Laverne,
I am so sorry to read of Bill’s death. How blessed you were to have had him for 65 years. Take good care of yourself in the days ahead and know that I am just a phone call away. God bless
