Obituary


BURRIL, William "Bill"

God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and whispered, "come to me". With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. All though we loved you dearly we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke our heart to prove to us, he only takes the best.
Bill passed away April 25th, at his home where he chose, surrounded by his family. Bill was born to Bert and Alice Burril on March 9, 1933.
