    We've only had the privilege of knowing William from a distance through Christine and Richard but have heard so many wonderful things through the years about him and his wonderful wife Lorraine recently passed. We are certain your devotion to his care and wellbeing since Lorraine's passing was a huge blessing and that you might find comfort in knowing he is now reunited with the love of his life. We are thinking of your entire family through these difficult days.

    Dear Christine I remember meeting your Dad and his dog when I picked up jewellry I purchased from you. He struck me as such a sweet and gentle man. I remember you telling me how much he missed your Mom. May you find comfort in knowing that he is with his love again. Thinking of you and saying prayers at this sorrowful time. Sending hugs. Anne
