My Deepest Sympathy to the Vanderwaal family on the sad passing of Bill. In the relatively short time that I knew Bill his generosity in helping out at the Central Bowls club was invaluable, his infectious laugh and smile will always be sadly missed at the Table in front of the Bar. RIP Billy. Bundy ( Peter Brandenburg)
Good bye uncle Bill you will be dearly missed by everyone. My deepest condolences and lots of love goes out to the whole family and this is something we will all feel for a long long time. One thing I remember fondly from being a kid is uncle Bill telling ( could have been telling ????) to never put milk in his beer glass and it’s something I stick to even now .
Condolences to the Vanderwaal family especially Dos. Sorry we couldn’t be there today but thoughts are with you.
Love Alie and Michael May
