It was with shock and sadness that we heard the news about Bill. He was larger than life and someone you thought would live forever. I bought my first horse from you at the age of 14 years and our paths have met many times after that. Your trail rides were always a great time.

We were so sad to hear of mr. Strain's passing. We will always remember and be thankful for his kindness to our family, especially our mom. His sense of humor was unmatched and we always enjoyed our visits to the farm. The picture of me at our wedding in his cowboy hat hangs on our wall proudly. All our love to the strain family at this most difficult time.
