    Helen, I just wanted you to know that you and Bill mean so much to me and my family. I have fond memories of the time we spent together at the beach when I was a kid. Dad always spoke highly of Bill and of his kindness and generosity. Bill was one of the kindest people I ever met. Your thoughtfulness when mom passed away will never be forgotten. Your and your family will be in our prayers.A
