Hello Heather, My sympathy to you and your family on the death of your father. Billy, as I knew him growing up in Oberon was a childhood friend of my brother Dale. When your father stayed at our home, I never could understand why he didn''t eat the bread crust. Your Grandfather had special greetings for people at the meat market. He always said to me, "Mary Lynn bumped her chin and couldn''t get up in the morning." Lorraine was one of the sweetest ladies in the Oberon community. My parents were very good friends with Bill and Lorraine. Mother (Hazel Carlson) helped out at the store for many years. When the Benson County Press arrived I was interested in reading about Bill''s life. Thank you for sharing. With caring concern, Mary Dykstra

Bill was a very special friend who appeared in my life when I most needed his humor and thoughtfulness. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with him. I''m sure he is a bright light in heaven.

We remember Bill for many things...his smile as we would often see him at the BDCC for dinner, or chatting with him about his roof, or discussing issues regarding education. He was a wonderful caring, dedicated man. Thank you, Bill, for the work you did for teachers and education in general. Your legacy of perseverance has benefited the entire community of Beaver Dam.

My memory of cousin Bill takes meback to Oberon with Grandma and Grandpa''s garden, crab apple tree, Uncle Bill''s candy store. A special memory was on a Sunday visit when teenage cousins, Billy and Jim gave us a ride to the DQ in New Rockford in a convertible! Bill visited our family through the years, occasionally bringing Heather. Our dad, Clarence,looked forward to their drives back to Oberon. Bless the memory of cousin Bill.

Learning of Bill Sullivan''s death reminded me of our shared high school years in Oberon, North Dakota. We were good friends,living at that time just a few houses apart. My father was the pastor of the Lutheran Church in town, his father a grocer. Though decades separate our acquaintance with each other, I offer my condolences to those who are giving thanks for his life these days. I join them in spirit. The peace of the Lord be with you.
