Maury - all the family pictures brought back a flood of memories (and tears) of Bill and family gatherings .....the New Years Day parties at John and Diane's....summer parties at the Howard cottage. I remember Bill's smile and the twinkle in his eye. Rest in peace cousin Bill!

I was very saddened to learn of Bills death today. Bill was a neighbour of mine on the 5th floor of the “Manor” . He was always a cheerful and smiling person in his greetings . He certainly had courage too as he went about his day, even driving his car! I admired him so much for that. Rest In Peace Bill- I will miss you. My condolences to his family and friends. ❤️ Violet
