    Eli, Sam and Julie,Mr and Mrs Stanley and family; It is with such sorrow we received the news about Bill and are filled with grief to think of your loss. Bill will remain in our hearts as open, loving, generous and one who could make us laugh at our family dinner table... like no other. He left his gift with many, many friends along this path. Bill was unique in always seeking to expand his understanding of his world, loved meeting new people and probing into all aspects that touched him. He loved and got great joy from his sons. He will be sorely missed. May he rest in peace.
