The family would like to thank all of our neighbours and the staff at the woolen mill for their generous support. We have received a huge outpouring of help, love and well-wishes. Thank you all for your phone calls, emails, cards and caring thoughts. Bill was clearly very dear to many people and we feel a tremendous sense of community. We are truly blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful people. In keeping with Bill's wishes, the family has decided not to have a public funeral service. Instead, a memorial celebration of life will be held at some point in the spring or summer of 2012. One thing Bill always loved was throwing a huge party. Many people will remember the great lamb and pig roasts that he hosted at the woolen mill. We hope that you will join us and share stories, music and a big barbecue when the time comes. We will do our best to contact all of the great people that Bill knew and loved. If you would like to be notified, please send an email to Please check back here for details~Thank-you,~Fen, Ruth, Esther, Noah,~Zeke, Lorelee and Maddy~ 1n23p
