    Dear Jill and Susan,

    I was saddened to hear of Bill’s passing. Your Dad was a very special man. My Dad many times said Bill was a “Prince of a Guy” – high praise from my Father. Bill always showed great compassion and kindness to his co-workers and friends at Imperial Oil.

    You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Sue

    Uncle Bill was bestowed with the nickname of “Papa Bill” at my dad’s funeral (Bill’s brother). Our Daughter Shandy was amazed at the likeness of the two brothers and felt so connected to her Papa with the heartfelt hug from Uncle Bill. Although our lives haven’t crossed too many times over the years his smile, and concern and wonderful laugh will be missed. Frank and I send our love and condolences and prayers for peace to you both Susan and Jill.

  6. Hey Susan, Jill

    I just want to let you both know that dad told me about my uncle Bill today. I am so sorry for your loss. While I always knew this news would come someday, I sure did not want to hear it. Uncle Bill was always like a rock in my mind. The quintessential guy that could always get things done and told it how it was no matter what!
    I will miss him that is for sure but I am just as glad to know he is with your mom now, and happy once again.
    Big hugs to both of you, and please take care,
