Dear Paula Jenny, and all of Bill’s family,

Please accept our condolences on the passing of Bill. He and Lee were good friends of my parents, Stu and Lil, and he and Dad spent many hours together when they lost their spouses. We loved Bill’s sense of humour and his stories and his wonderful laugh. No matter how long we have our Dads, it hurts so much to lose them. Our sympathy to Jenny as she and Bill had some lovely times together that made him very happy over the last several years. Rest in Peace dear Bill.
