    Really didn’t know Bill that well, but always remember how cheerful he sounded when he answered the phone, no matter what he was going through. Life hasn’t been easy for both of you for so long. Very sorry that we are unable to attend his services. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. On behalf of myself, my Mom & Dad (Frank and Helen Darling) and all the Darling family we truly wish to extend our love and condolences at this time, we were all deeply sadden of the passing of Bill-Bill, my personal memories seeing him at the family reunions and at Betty and Marty’s house are memories of joy…he always had a twinkle in his eye and smile on his face extending happiness to anyone in his presence. Love Michelle Doucette (Darling)
