Condolences from family and friends

Posted by Trifee and Irma Miaco | 27-Apr-2023

Our deepest condolences to the family of our friend, Bill. Glad to speak to you over the phone with your happy voice telling me all sorts of stories. I posted your phone number on my wall next to my work desk. When I looked at it, I said I will call Bill but got very busy with work and I forgot. When I saw Glen at RCL walking to our table, I sensed something and guessed it. You and Lil are remembered with our fond memories at the Legion. Rest in peace Bill. May God's perpetual light shine upon you.
