I am sorry to hear of Bill's passing. I remember him as a kind man who loved his wife and daughters and the farm. My daughter, Catherine, was a good buddy of Paige's and I heard wonderful stories of Bill's baking. My heart is with all of you.
My deepest sympathies at the loss of your husband, dad, grand dad, brother. Dr. Pritchard hired me in 1985 to work for him at Veterinary Services. He was one of the best bosses I had. A true gentleman, strong leader and teacher. I'm glad to have known him. I trust your wonderful memories will comfort you in his absence.
We express our love & support to you & all your special family at this time of loss of dear, kindly, "Bill". His absence will be deeply felt. Your entire family holds such a special place in our hearts for the dear friendship we have with you.
May you have a sweet day as you hold his tribute on the 4th.
You have such a big hole to face now, and my heart goes out to you all. The last days do sound perfect though – perhaps there was no better way to spend his last days than with the family he created with Ellie. Bill was very much one of the humans in the world I admired and love above most others. His gentleness and compassion were truly life changing for me. Much love to you, and in time, solace for having had him play such a big role in all your lives.
I just want to send you a big hug. I can imagine how hard it is for you and your family. Bill was such a great person, sensitive and strong, but also sweet and calm. I think he was the Husband, Father and GrandPa that everyone would have dreamed of. I feel really lucky to have had the privilege to know him. I'm not religious but I like to think about the people we loved and are not anymore with us as bright lights that guide our life's pathway. Bill will have a special place in my heart.
Lots of love,
I am so sorry to hear about Bill's passing, but glad that his body can rest. Thank you for letting me know. Please pass on our condolences to the rest of your family. It was always a joy to work with him.

I wish I could be with you all, I'm there with you with my thought and with my heart . As I told you I have always had a special feeling with dad. I have always got along with him so well, he has always been for me a very special person.
I am so sorry to hear this news and am sending the whole family my sincerest condolences. So many fond memories from years ago.
Growing up on Alvarado Terrace, so far away from our extended family in Minnesota, I always felt like your family were like surrogate aunt/uncle/cousins and over the years your friendship meant so much to all of the Theodorsons. Mr Prichard was an amazing person--what a remarkable life! A good and generous man who helped me learn how to sing to cows and find a quiet balance in a sometimes chaotic childhood. I feel so lucky to have known him.
Bill was a faithful member of the exercise and support group for Parkinson's. He was so sweet and nice to all. He will be missed. I enjoyed his wit and quiet sense of humor. Please accept sympathy on your loss. A donation of $25 in his name was made to the OHSU Parkinson Center. The service for Bill was wonderful! I left inspired by his example. What a beautiful family is left to carry on his work ethic and life.

I am so sorry. I feel with you and send you strength and consolation. Dad was a very special person. I remember the days when he baked bread. And I had been sitting in the kitchen talking with him or we just stayed silent. You could stay connected with him without talking and feel his attention on you and his love. I am very very sad. He was so important for me. He was a great father. I have learned aspects which I didn’t have with my dad. He was very important for my development. I am so glad I visited last summer and that we had a such good time together and am grateful I had some time with him. I hope you find strength and comfort from all your family and friends.
