    We will miss Bill so much. Our shock at his passing is still with us. Our plans to meet with Bill in two weeks for our usual get together of Michael’s take out, a bottle of Puerto Rico Rum and talking of old times of Bobbie, Cookie, Billy, the Why Me, the trips to Nova Scotia and many more memories that filled the night will be sorely missed.

    A part of us is relieved that he is at peace and not with health problems and that he is with Bobbie now, but for us it is hard to think that we will never see him again sitting behind his bar singing songs of Newfoundland and German marching songs with that beer stein waving.

    We will always treasure the great memories over the last thirty years.

    Our deepest sympathy to Sandy and family.
