Dear Friends and Family

Im writing to let you all know that Bill sadly passed away on Tuesday 28th August at Addenbrooke's Hospital.
He died peacefully from cardiac failure and was surrounded by family; he was 86 years old.
Bill loved life, his laughter filled our lives. He loved his family, books and the garden. His honey, apple juice and raspberries were legendary.
Thank-you to all the medical and nursing staff who cared for him.

With my grateful thanks for our marriage of 59 years and many happy times with family and friends.
