Hi Esther,
So sorry to read of Bill passing away.  We so enjoyed being your neighbors in Blossom Hill.  I think about the two of you all of the time.  We will keep you and the family in our prayers.    Karen and Mark Arbogast

I am sorry to hear of the passing of Bill. He and Grace welcomed me into their home for a year in 1980 while I was teaching in Mount Joy . We remained in contact and it was always lovely to hear of the busy and interesting life he had . 
My condolences to the family , but I’m sure you’ll be comforted with the thought that Bill had a good, long life. 
Ann Colder , nee Salt. Derby, England.
