Shortly after midnight, Bill passed away, with all of his immediate family by his side. We are thankful that his suffering is over; we are hopeful in our knowledge that he is with his God; but we miss him terribly, as we know many of you do too.
We thank you for your continued prayers and words of comfort. We appreciate your understanding as we will not be able to return every email or phone call. Please know that we feel very loved and we are thankful to know you share our grief.
A memorial service for Bill will be held at Park Street Church in Boston (www.parkstreet.org
) this Saturday, March 19th at 5 PM. A reception will follow immediately after the service; all are invited to share some food and visit with our family and with other friends of Bill. (This will be in place of a wake.) In lieu of flowers, we invite you to consider a donation to International Justice Mission (www.ijm.org
) or to the Cancer Center at Massachuetts General Hospital (www.massgeneral.org/cancer/
), two organizations that Bill loved and supported.
We have attached some more photos that were taken by a talented local photographer (Grace Benson) shortly after Bill was diagnosed with his cancer. We hope you enjoy looking at them and find comfort in them, as we have.
