Our sympathy, Marcia. We were sorry to learn of Bill's death. We cannot know all you are adjusting to without having his physical presence and support.

I met Bill when we bought one of the many houses he built and still live there today. He was a man of character and honesty and I respect him to this day. I thought of him many times after he and Marcia moved from Pleasantview Ct and often wished I could have stayed in contact with him. I wish Marcia only the best and that she will feel the love of God surrounding her as she moves forward.

We had 54 years of happy marriage with mostly ups and a few downs. The hardest year of our marriage was Sept 1972 - Sept 1973 when he was in Vietnam. I will love and miss him forever.
