    Anna, Rite and families: We were saddened to hear of the passing of Bill. He holds such a special place in our memories, and the many Sunday afternoons spent visiting, and laughing at the abundant stories he had to share. (and not just a little bit of teasing too!) Thanks, Uncle Bill for the memories, you’ll be missed.
