I have the fondest memories of my Uncle Bill. Deb and I spent many summers together and of course there was always that New Brunswick road trip. Great vacation traveling through the east coast in his car with the top down. He was there

for our family during some dark days and I will
always remember his caring and gentle ways. God bless you Uncle Bill, the world is a sadder place without you in it.
