Mary, Rodney and Kyle: we are so sorry to hear of the passing of uncle Bill. Living in Edmonton makes it impossible for us to be with everyone at this tragic time. He shall be in our hearts forever and will be deeply missed. Niece and Nephews, Lori, Ron and Justin.

Will miss Sweet William very much. He was always so nice to Mary bringing flowers for dates and driving that awesome Monte Carlo. Mom thought the world of Bill!

Sorry to hear the news Kyle and Rod, wish I could swing by. So many memories, from the last time he stopped in at my dads (the Bite) talking about everyone in Bowmanville's nicknames from that era, to the memories of you guys over on Liberty Place in the early 70's. That picture of him with the cigarette is sure how I remember him. Take care and my sympathies to all his family and friends including Mary, I hope she finds comfort in fond memories.
