Kenneth and Ramona Sinner and Family Jun 13 ,2019

Cousin ,Scottsbluff ,Nebraska

Family of William “Bill” Dick. On behalf of Kenneth and Ramona Sinner and family, we want to express our deepest and sincere condolences. Ken and Bill were cousins, but grew up closer than brother in eastern Colorado. Dad spoke often about all the good times they shared as young boys. When travel became difficult, time and distance separated them, Dad would give “Cousin Bill” a call and they would talk and reminisce, horses was the focus most of their conversation. My Dad will miss visiting with him, but he has some pictures of the two of them. Mark Sinner, for the Sinner family from Nebraska.
