To The Herald-Whig:

From both of us, William "Bill" and Janet, we share our sincere appreciation for the overwhelming volume of congratulatory cards, phone calls, letters, memories, Facebook posts, and personal well wishes extended to us as we celebrated our 65th wedding anniversary on July 24.

A special thanks goes to our children and their spouses, ALL of our grandchildren and our ever-growing extended family.

To those who traveled to celebrate with us, thank you for traveling to be a part of a special evening. To our loved ones unable to be present, you were with us in our hearts and missed by all.

Thank you, too, to the staff at Drakes Steak and Ale restaurant for accommodating our large family dinner. We consider ourselves very blessed to have such loving family, friends, neighbors and community in our lives.

William "Bill" and Janet Hilgenbrinck
