Uncle Bill was a guiding force in my life and mainstay to our family when my Dad passed. He was smart, fun and knew how to celebrate life. He has a special place in my heart and will be sorely missed and fondly remembered. His kindness to us cannot be measured.
With so much love from Louise and Peter
