Dear Maragret, Houghton (aka Horton), Carolyn, Louise and family,
Michael and I only wished we had known Bill for many more years than we had the pleasure to know him. He was an inspiration to all who had the honor to know him and hear his Parryisms!!
Our time spent in your cabin that you so gracioulsy let us use and then after we got our own cabin in the woods with and without you all there spoke of a different time and place where pain and sorrow seemed to disappear and fun and frivolity abounded. The decor of that cabin was an inspiration to all! We are most proud of the fact that you felt that Michael could fill your shoes as Kitchen Chairman at Wear's Hunt Club. We will do our best to continue your traditions and use your recipes for meal preparations.(well not all of them, ie your sausage gravy recipe..).
It might be a long time before Louise will smile again but I am sure she knows as we all do that you are in a better place helping to make sure the landscape of heaven is just perfect.
Until we meet again around the firepit.
We love you and miss you.
Michael and Jackie St.John
