Uncle Bill Passes Away

Yesterday I heard that my Uncle Bill was close to death and rushed over to the Palliative Care unit at our local hospital. He had been transferred there from the Peterborough Regional Health Centre a week ago. While I was in his room Uncle Bill breathed his last and was ushered into the presence of the Lord. My Aunt Shirley and their four children Paul, Doug, Susanne and Jane were all present. The following article appeared in today's edition of our local newspaper, The Peterborough Examiner.

Visitation will be Monday, March 24th at Comstock's Funeral Home in Peterborough from 2-4 and 7-9. The funeral will be held on Tuesday, March 25th at Murray Street Baptist Church in Peterborough at 1:30 p.m.

Please pray for Aunt Shirley, her children, their spouses and the grandchildren as they grieve the loss of a wonderful man!

The only sibling still surviving is my Aunt Eileen. Uncle Frank died suddenly from a wasp's sting back in 1961. My dad, Chester, passed away in 1992. Another sister, Jessie, died when she was only 6 months old.
