saying goodbye

I want to thank you all for your good thoughts and heartfelt prayers concerning my brother in law, Bill.
Today is his memorial service.

Bill loved my sister fiercely and for that I will always be grateful.

Once he and my sister moved to their farm, you would usually find him in the garden or with this blue beast cutting hay for the horses. Other times, he was dragging home stray cats and dogs to care for.




but he was happy to hang with the rest of the family too...especially if someone was telling a good joke.


We love you Bill, until we meet again...

Dear Val, I was so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. Any man who brings home stray animals to care for must have been a truly gentle, kind man. Sending heartfelt wishes to your sister. Peace & blessings, Tammy
