Louise, so sorry for your loss. That is such an aggressive form of cancer. It had to be very hard on both of you these past months. Thoughts and prayers are going out to you and your children

It truly is. With love...

Louise I was so surprised to hear of Bill loss. In my school contacts with him in Quadrangle and sports, he was always gentile and kind. He was a great guy. Peace and grace to you and your family.

Louise, I am sorry to hear of Bill's passing. I think of you two every time I drive past your townhome on Grant St. or your house on Golf Rd. May you be sustained through the love of family and friends.

Both you and Bill remain "forever young" in my mind's eye, so that this is a very sad notice. My wish is that the family that you and Bill created brings you as much comfort as possible during this difficult time.

Once Upon A Time


Once upon a time, not so long ago,

When measured by the universal clocks,

We are born, and we live, but we all know,

Time is relative, and we’re neither rocks


Nor redwood trees that live a thousand years,

Just humans, who have a past, and can trace

Our futures. With memories, hopes and fears,

We run against time, but can’t win that race,


Now, someone always there’s no longer here,

But generations pass, and we still sing,

Though when end of life comes to someone dear,

The songs we know may have a hollow ring.


God blessed us with the time that he was here,

With every day, every month and every year,


Once upon a time, that’s all there can be

Ashes to Ashes, that’s life’s mystery.

Louise, so very sorry to hear about Bill's passing.  I don't remember a time when the two of you weren't a couple.  My sincere condolences to you and your family.
