Memories Timeline


  1. To the family,

    We are sorry to hear of your loss. We will hold you in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. Kauffmann Family … you have our most sincere condolences. Bill was a highly committed and respected member of the pharmacy community, and helped make the lives of everyone he served better. He deserves praise for his life’s work on the job. My father, Julian, who passed away last year, would have paid similar respects.

    As a youth growing up, I used to hang around B&B a great deal, chumming around with the Sloop boys. Mr. Kauffmann was always an amusing and friendly gentleman, and he was always kind to me. I will always remember him.

  3. David, We are so sorry to hear about your father. He was a wonderful man. Mike enjoyed working with him at B&B. He always had a good story to tell and was good for some great jokes. I know you will miss him, but just take comfort in knowing that he is in a much better place.
