It is with deep sympathy in your loss. I had just talked to Bill last week looking to purchase a stone. We talked a long time . It was a long time since we had talked. I am so glad I had the opportunity to talk about years past. Again I am sorry for your loss.

 Bill stopped over at the firehouse often and we would chat about current events and about mutual acquaintances.  I am going to miss those visits.
