I was so sorry to hear of Bill passing away. Although I never met you, Dorothy, I knew a lot about you as Bill would always talk about you. I knew how much he loved you and the family. I worked with him at N.H. for many years and never knew him to not smile. My prayers go out to his family.

Aunt Dottie, Sharon and Glenn,
So sorry to hear about the loss of my dear Uncle Bill. I have fond memories of the last time we were with him at his cottage with my mom. My girls were little and he was so sweet to them and such a gracious host, full of love and wisdom. He will be very missed. Love you all, Pam
