"Cousin Bill" and his first wife "Cousin Ruth" (my Dad's first cousin) were beloved guests at our home in Portugal. They left a strong impression on me as a child. They were both calm but fun, endlessly curious and enthusiastic and always interesting to talk to!
As an adult, after Ruth had passed away, I had the wonderful opportunity to correspond with Cousin Bill and to even spend a few days at his home in Toronto. His intelligence, wit and caring attitude still are an inspiration to me, as I am sure they are to many others.
My parents, Vital and Maria Aurora, were very sad to hear of Bill' passing. We send our most heartfelt condolences and love to all the family.
