Dear Aldridge family,

It is difficult to express our sorrow upon hearing of Billy’s passing. Greg & he were friends for many, many years (ergo my friend as well.) I used to say to him, “Billy your eyes have such a sweet sparkle & as such, from here on out, I will call you “Sweet William” & I did. So today I say, rest in love & peaceful slumber Sweet William. Your sparkle will be missed.

With sincere sympathies, Allison J Bauman & Greg Cascio

“I am standing upon the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze
& starts for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauty and strength,
& I stand and watch until at last she hangs
like a speck of white cloud
just where the sea and sky come down to mingle with each other.
Then someone at my side says,
“There she’s gone!”
Gone where?
Gone from my sight . . . that is all.
She is just as large in mast and hull and spar
as she was when she left my side
& just as able to bear her load of living freight
to the place of destination.
Her diminished size is in me, not in her.
And just at the moment
when someone at my side says,
“There she’s gone!”
there are other eyes watching her coming . . .
& other voices ready to take up the glad shout . . .
“Here she comes!”
