    Joan and Family, first of all Bill was a good man and hardworking. Even the day I came down to see him at home before he went into Hospice, I came into the room and he replied “Hey Lee” with a big smile.
    Love to all

    Joan,
    I think if our Loved ones could come back and communicate with us or leave us a Letter,. I think this is what they would say:

    Joan,
    I would want you to remember this. You mean the world to me.
    My life has been enriched by being a part of yours.
    The time that we had to share with one another was precious.
    We grew together; we Loved together, and we experienced Life together.
    How fortunate we are to have had each other in our lifes.
    Love Candy ❤
