Bill’s family would like to thank the nursing staff at Cairnsmore Place for all the extra care and attention they showed him and continue to show us. Also thank you to Dr. Sanders.
No service by request, but Bill would be very pleased if everyone would raise a cold one to him (preferably a Lucky Lager!)
