  1. Auntie Marion, Rob and Shauna: We are deeply sorry for your loss. Bill was more than just an uncle to me, Amanda and Michael. He was like our second father. We spent every holiday and special occasion with all of you and I have so many memories of all of us piling into one motorhome for trips to the waterslides in BC, of time spent out at the lake, snowmobiling, ice skating, tubing and waterskiing and how no-one would let him drive the boat cause he drove too fast , trips to California and Mexico. He was always there for us when we were growing up and even into adulthood he was there to help out when he could. We will all miss our Uncle Bill. I hope you can find comfort in all the memories.

  2. I send my deepest sympathy in this time of sorrow. The Bible promises that your loved one will live again on a beautiful paradise earth when death will be no more. (John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:4)

  3. I remember Uncle Billy fondly. He always had a smile and seemed happy.
    I remember learning to waterski with him at the lake. It is a memory I will always cherish.

    The bible promises that there will be a resurrection Acts 24:15. The bible reports eight people that were brought back to life on earth. Soon this will be a reality for many of our dead loved ones. John 5:28,29
