Aunt Sylvia and cousins Gord, Lorie, Billy and Margie.
I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of uncle Will, although we very seldom seen each other these past years, I was lucky enough in the recent years to reconnect with you all. I was able to see uncle Will and aunt Sylvia on my trip to the Island in Sept 2014 after 22 years, so glad to have been able to have that moment. My best and most favorite memory of uncle was xmas when you lived on King Street. Rest in Peace uncle Will and I hope BINGO is good to you up there:)
Sending my love from Australia & hugs to you all.
