Bill was very efficient in anything he did. They moved back to Todd St. (Bill's Family home) in 1991 and Bill renovated the whole house. (the woodwork in their garage would make you wish for the same in your kitchen). He was a dedicated and hard working member of Milltown Branch #48 Royal Canadian Legion, giving tirelessly of his time and talents. He loved children and looked forward to going to the Milltown Elementary School around Remembrance Day each year and marching them to the cenotaph. When the Milltown Legion and the Ladies Auxiliary were doing the reading program, it was Bill, the children asked for. At the time of his death, he was Padre of the Branch and with the help of his daughter Judy, came to the Milltown Cenotaph for the Remembrance Day service and Brunch at the Milltown Legion. He had his own way of doing things, and didn't hesitate to let you know, but studied and knew protocol right down to the nth degree. He loved people and was a very dear friend, and will surely be missed by all who knew him. And so my friend, You have earned your rest and peace.. May the earth rest easy over you as you lie beneath it, Go with God.

Her last few days were peaceful surrounded by her immediate family and dear friend Linda, her favourite music playing softly in the background and a lovely pink scarf draped across her arms. In her own words "A Message of Thanks, this is a really a thank you to all the people who helped me along my life journey. To the people who really knew me and have loved me all of my life, who will hold me, close in their hearts. These are the people who also hold a place in my heart. ...I am glad I had this time on earth. I was truly blessed to have met and married two wonderful men, Allan and Paul...My children Deb and Bob know the place they hold in my heart, how much they are loved, the pride I have in their accomplishments. The joy of having Amanda and Kate. I was happy to have my stepdaughter Sue and my grandsons Spencer and Alex in my life....There are so many people in our lives, family, friends, bridge club, church, people we work with and people who are there for us when times are tough.
