Dear Ann and Family,
I was so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He was always such a fun-loving man. I remember him with fondness. St. Joseph's Home was blessed with his presence often over the years when you worked there, Ann. Good days! Be assured of my prayers for him and you during this time. God bless you.
