    Dear Family–Please accept our deepest sympathy on the passing away of Uncle Bill. He will always be close in our hearts & we remember the many great times we had with him. Please know that you are in our thoughts & prayers. May he rest in eternal peace.

  • Sonia Fraser says:

    For many he was William. For others he was Uncle Bill. For me and my sisters he was Uncle Willy: a man with a gleaming grin and eyes bright with mischief. He found a way to enjoy a long life often filled with physical pain.
    Our condolences to you.

    • Gloria Evans says:

      Thanks Sonia
      I just found this page today. Didn’t know it was there. Uncle Willy isn’t one that I really remember but thanks for your condolences.
