I just learned of Art's passing this last Friday March 1. So sorry. Art and i were good friends backRead More in the early 70's. Good memories of camping and fishing together. Good times with the Fire Department District 25, also remember Art senior too. I spent all weekend thinking of great times spent together doing crazy things in our early 20's. Lynn Reynolds

To me, he was Uncle-Bill; the gentle giant with the mustache & the funny way of talking (a kidsRead More pov). Best memory of Uncle-B was one summer afternoon, I was tormenting my younger cousin Bob D. a little too much during our 1-on-1 game of full contact football -- Uncle-B taught me 2 very important life-lessons that day: 1) when thrown at the proper velocity, a football CAN catch the receiver (whether he wants it to, or not)! -&- 2) protect those who are smaller & weaker (especially FAMILY) than you, not because you're told to, but because it's the right thing to do......Family 1st, integrity always! Thanks Sandy, for the history snap-shot; your article will hang right next to my signed copy of Bill's St. Louis Cardinals team photo, in my Man-cave! RIP Uncle-Bill & God Bless the Donckers family.

Jenae, First and foremost i want to express my deepest sympathy to you during this time , myself andRead More Courtney love you and are here for you . Anthony was very lucky to have you and dont ever forget that , everytime we talked it was about real stuff , family, life, golf, seahawks, but everytime he talked about you he lit up . He loved you and always will , please dont forget that. Anthony was a great friend and great man and I am lucky to know the both of you . We may never get answers to such a tragedy but one thing i know for sure , HE LOVED YOU and ALWAYS WILL.

I hear the depth of Vanessa's grief in the comment that neighbors don't want to get involved, butRead More I'm afraid she's mistaken. Just who does anyone expect would be watching the street--pitch black or brightly lit--at that hour of the morning? I was at the vigil briefly, and I had the opportunity to speak with Minh's sister. To her, her family, and the many friends I wish you peace and for the killer to be brought to justice. Best, --Mark

J.P. Patches was a gift to my childhood. In the summer all the kids in the neighborhood would beRead More playing outside from sun up to down sun down. The only time we stopped was to eat meals and watch J.P. Patches to laugh at his antics, learn important life lessons (Mind your parents, say your prayers and share your toys) and see the neat cartoons. When I was older, I remember one time introducing myself at a Univ. of WA evening class and sharing that I grew up watching J.P. Patches. Half the class broke out with the biggest smiles and the other half had puzzled looks. It quickly let me know the longtime locals vs later arrivals. Good bye for now J.P. (Chris Wedes). I'm sure God has a special place in heaven for all the joy you gave others!

I met JP Patches several years ago during a safety fair in Kent. He rode in my ambulance in theRead More front seat for a grand enterance. We talked for 30 minutes before the fair and I will cherish those moments. (I will post photos later tonight). My two boys also met him that day and his interaction with children was always the same comforting and he could make you laugh. His illness never got the best of him with kids around. He will be missed and honored in the best way possible in the following days! He will be honored and remembered everyday with the lives he touched, including the many children he visited at Children's Hospital. Thank you JP, there is no one like you in this world.
