Bill was the kindest person that I have ever met-he never had a hidden agenda-he always had a warm smile and a funny story to tell- I know that he will be in charge of the big poker game in heaven-DD

My condolences to the Coutts family. I remember "Mr. Coutts" as my math teacher at Central Junior High School in Weymouth. He was the only teacher in my experience who made math fun. He was always full of enthusiasm and high energy, and he was very kind and warm! I am a teacher now, partly because of teachers like him. I'm sorry he was taken from you so soon! God bless.
