We were lucky enough to be neighbours to this lovely couple, Marg and Bill. A kind gentle man always ready for a chat is what we will remember. RIP Bill.

I will miss you Uncle Bill, your smile was always so welcoming. I always loved when we would go to your house in the big city. I loved watching you, your brothers and sisters get together, you guys showed us all what a family was all about. The joking, the laughing and the love. Rest in peace Uncle Bill and please say hi to my dad for me, I know he will be waiting for you.
