Our deepest condolences to Sandi, Helen and families also Bill's surviving siblings.
It was a great pleasure to meet Bill when we visited 2015. Though we can't be physically there, you will all be in our thoughts on Friday.
Love Gail and Roy, Corinne (Sue) and Steve your Scottish cousins xx


I won't be there physically, but you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I was really looking forward to seeing him this fall.
Hugs to all of you

Ken & Jo Anne Wigmore:

Our sympathy to Sandi & Dan , Helen , Arron and family. It is unbelievable his passing, Bill and Carol were in our lives for a lot of years and great people to work with. So glad he dropped by our house for a visit last summer.


Sandi, Helen and families.
My deepest sympathies on the loss of your dad, father-in-law and grandpa. He will be missed by everyone who knew him. He was the most generous person ( next to your mom) that I have ever known. I am glad I got to spend time with him on his last day, sharing many laughs. Hugs to all

Priscilla Jantzie:

Helen Aaron & girls, Sandi & Dan,
So sorry to hear about your Dad's passing. Treasure all of your memories!
Love, Priscilla, Nathan & Jill
