We were so saddened to learn of Uncle Bill's death. We will always remember him as a loving, happy, and friendly man. He was a welcome a guest in our houses in MA and Florida and our cottage in NH. We also enjoyed visiting with Uncle Bill and Fern in CT and ME and, years later, with he and Lucette in ME and FL. His passing has left a void in us. We will remember his smiling face forever.
