Dear Shona,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. We just learned of Bill’s passing today, September 20th.
I well remember rooming with Bill for 2 years, from the night I arrived from Depot to Peace River in 1964. He was deeply in love with you then! Bill helped me to become the policeman I became; and to become the person I am today.

We are all still reeling from the shock of losing our Gentle Giant, Bill, so suddenly. There is a big void in our lives and we will miss him forever. I can never thank Bill and Shona enough for welcoming me into their family when I met Kevin. Thank you to everyone for your kind words and support.
