So sorry to hear this news, knew your dad for a long time, never guessed he was 84, always looked young for his age, hard work and love of cars. Praying for comfort for you all my friends.

To Elaine and all my cousins,

I was saddened to hear the news about Uncle Bill. He was a mountain of a man in my eyes and I will always remember how small my hand seemed when shaking his. Terry used to tease me by calling me ‘Little Billy’ but I kind of liked the idea that I might be a little like the fellow with the gruff exterior and the soft heart. We will miss his summer visits in his ‘Vette’! I’m sorry for your loss but please know that Uncle Bill will always be a part of our family too. Take care and I hope you can feel the love coming your way from Lakefield.

Garret, Jess, Isla and Jameson

I wish I could have been at the service today.

I will say goodbye and plant a tree in Uncle Bill’s memory out at the farm this weekend. Mom says I probably have Uncle Bill to blame/thank, at least in part, for wanting to have a farm! I sure loved our visits to the Cranston farm when I was a kid.

Bill was always a really good uncle to me – never overbearing or trying to take the place of my father – but always supportive and ready to help out when I needed it. With all his own kids and grandkids it’s a testament to the size of his heart that he had time and love to share with his nephew too.

Much love to you all,
Ramsey
