Pat and Family, Just want you to know we are thinking of you at this sad time and pray that you feel God's arms of peace around you.
Jimmy, Billy, Annie, and Pat, Bill was a good man, I will never forget those big breakfasts he used to cook up when Jimmy would have sleepovers. I am sorry for your loss
Annie and the Malkowiak Family,
I know how much your entire family means to you, Annie. I can only imagine the depth of this loss for all of you. I wish all of you peace, love and healing as you grieve.
I am heartbroken.
A wonderful husband, father and friend passed away. Furthermore, Bill was a tremendous role model for my brother, friends and I. We used to love playing hoops with him.
Death is a part of all of our lives. To think that people like my father, Mr. Timmerman and Mr. Malkowiak are gone is something each of us struggle with. They may all be gone, but never forgotten.
With love and admiration for the Malkowiak family -- Nick Neupauer
My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. I wish you the best in this time of healing with your family.
