    Rosemary,Jim and I would like to send our condolences to you and your family with the loss of Bill. We have fond of memories of him at Delmar Gardens as he was my Uncles neighbor there. You guys kept an eye on him when we were not there and will always be grateful for that. Rosemary, you were such a loving, caring and patient wife with Bill, always there for him. You two certainly set the example of true love. May you find peace in the memories of Bill. Take care and Gob bless you and your family during this difficult time.
