    To the entire Villiard Family, especially Kathy ~ I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Villiard always was so full of life and I truly enjoyed selling those Xmas trees back in high school with Kathy:) and hanging out at your home all those years ago during grade school and high school. Great memories! My thoughts and prayers are with all of you on this sad occasion. xo.

    Dear Villiard Family,
    We are sorry for the loss of Roger. We learned this when we came last week for our tree. It’s been our tradition with our boys for 25+ years. We will miss the visiting and the stories we all shares. Our prayers are with you.
