Aunt Helen, Pat, Pete and families you are in our thoughts and prayers. We were so sad to hear of Uncle Bill’s passing. He was very special to me from the time I was a little girl and even more so as I grew older and got married and he also became a very special friend to Gerry. We have so many happy memories of visits of him and Aunt Helen to our home over the years and our visits to Fergus. We are so thankful that we came up to visit last Fall when he was so sick. In spite of his illness we still had a great visit and reminisced about many past memories. We will miss him greatly but know some day we will be reunited. Betty Ann & Gerry
