Dear Bonnie -- It seems like a couple of lifetimes ago that we said goodbye to you and Bill at the Nautilus in Daytona. (I happened to stumble upon this sad news on the London Free Press website.) Randy and I were both very shocked and saddened to learn of Bill's death. Although we were aware of Bill's illness, he was always upbeat and enjoying every moment when we were around you. Only a week of fun that we shared with the 2 of you, but we liked Bill very much and wanted to let you know you're in our thoughts and prayers. Hugs from Liz and Randy Brown in Stratford

We have fond memories of Bill with Bonnie travelling to the East coast in 2016. Bill was never a burden to those with him and viewed all excursions as a challenge that he was ready for! He had a determined spirit and enjoyed life to the fullest even with his walker or chair. We often spoke of Bill and remembered him but could not recall where he lived. Sending our sincere condolences to Bonnie and family. Bill was an inspiration to us even in the short time we were together. God bless!

As medical director of Imperial Oil, I had the privilege of meeting with Bill and Bonnie on several occasions. One could not help but be impressed with Bill’s strength and determination despite health challenges. My most enduring memories are those of the mutual affection and support they so openly displayed. This was a blessed union of two extraordinary people. May the memories remain a source of comfort.

Randy and I (Monica) remember with great delight our downhill skiing adventures with Bill and Bonnie, When I had joined the Imperial Oil ski club I did not realize that I would find such good friends as Bill and Bonnie. Each one of our Friday earned days off were so much fun as we took the bus (party time) to Blue Mountain. Bill, Bonne, Jim Harris, and my Husband (occasionally Rupert, Bill and Jim) spent the day zipping down the snow covered hills. The other ski holidays with the club were just as enjoyable. Bonnie we are so sorry that Bill is no longer with you, but his life was full of many interesting activities and the company of many people who enjoyed spending time with him. Be well and remember all the good times. From Monica and Randy Hunter
