    Dear Ingrid, we are so sorry for your loss, but truly happy that you had the opportunity to find a true soul mate and experienced the pleasure of true love. Unfortunately, in this life we will never understand why Bill was taken so soon. We can only pray that when our earthly journey is complete, we will be reunited with those we loved. In the meantime, may you cherish the wonderful memories Bill left behind. Remember he is not gone, just gone before! His suffering is over and you have a very special angel looking over you, an angel to help heal your sorrow and provide faith for your tomorrows. Love and blessings, Sandie and Ray McBrien

    My Dearest Ingrid:

    We will always refer to Bill as Senor Bill. How fitting was the picture of Senor Bill on his horse waving. You can tell he is in his element and how lucky are you to share it and hold those memories close to you heart. Life is better with your best friend, that is why you married Senor Bill. I am sure you consider the journey with Senor Bill the best part of your life. I know the journey, to Mexico, we took together was one of the best adventures Bert and I had. We had so much fun and the memories from that trip will be fondly remembered. I don’t think a week goes by that we don’t think or talk about the trip. The best part was when Senor Bill and his friend got a Mariachi band to play for you and I. I will treasure this always.
    I am here if you need to talk now and always.

    Bert & Laura

    We send our condolences to the whole family. Bill will be missed by many. Bill was the second outfitter I ever worked for in the territories I learn a lot from this man, hunting, outfitting and one of the best sheep hunters I have ever know. The mountains will miss him

  16. My deepest sympathies to your family. I met Bill many many years ago when I hitch hiked across Canada. I was 17 and knew nothing about life, until I met Bill. In the short time I had in his company I learned what it took to be a good man, husband, father and friend. He has been in my heart ever since. I learned how to ride a horse, branded cattle, rode trails, watched the sun rise and set in the most beautiful place I have ever seen and laughed until it hurt. I was a lost soul, which is why I was on the road, and I met Bill. The two most important days in your life….the day you’re born, and the day you find out why. Bill helped me discover the reason why.
