I'm sorry to hear the passing of Bill. My condolences go out to Richard, Darryl and Sue-Ann. I still remember Bill taking us fishing near the dam. It was great fun!

Dear Sue: I was so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. I remember many a time over the years when my dad and I would run in to you and Bill (usually with a grandchild in tow) at a coffee shop or restaurant. My thoughts and my prayers are with you and your family.
