So sorry for your loss Carolyn. You and Bill were the best neighbors we ever had when you lived in Enfield, CT. I will never forget the first winter I lived there and Bill helped me dig my car out of the snow, not once but twice. We had so many fun times together. Hated when you moved. Will never forget you both and wished we could have lived closer. He was such a kind man and I will never forget you both. Much love to you and your family. So glad your boys are there for you.

Our dear Carolyn, there is no word to describe our sorrow for loosing a wonderful person, who was extremly generous with his time, and knowledge. If there was a project, Bill would tackle without hesitation and successfuly complete it. We had the honor to meet him and his family since 1987, and all of us connected immediately. We always go to the album, and cherish our great memories. We all will miss this wonderful person, who we loved more than a friend.

We send our deepest sympathy for the family. Bill was one of the most kind people in the world. His parents lived across the road from us. I kinda looked after them a little ,but when his mother left us . At the funeral we were sitting in the friends section, he came back and got us and said we were family, took us up front. He was always thoughtful. He will be sadly missed by many.
