Thinking of Uncle Bill and what a lot of great memories we have of him and Aunt Biddy, and all the Coleman family. So many years when our families got together and shared a lot of laughter, food and special times.
Bill was a quiet man but always caring, genuinely interested in what was going on in our lives, and had a great sense of humour. I always looked forward to seeing him, and held him in high esteem.
(And he loved the Leafs! Go Leafs Go.)
Our hearts grieve, but we are also thankful he is at peace at last. He will be missed but thought of so often.
