    Bill you will be missed on Seaward way. I will always remember you coming over whistling and our dog bear who has passed loved you. And I won’t have to buy the giant olives that you loved. We enjoyed teasing each about the New York Football Giants and the Vikings. And sitting next to You and Linda at the performing arts shows. Art and Mary Ellen;
