I'm pretty sure we were both parishioners at St Johns Episcopal and were members of the boy scout troop there. As much as my generation "disses" computers, I am grateful to keep in touch this way as I live in the Buffalo, NY area now.
May God the Father look upon Bill with love and call him to Himself above
May flights of angels lead Bill on his way to paradise ad Heavens eternal day
Love and condolences,
