I grew up kitty corner to Bill and Gloria and the kids on Standish St in Enfield. Gloria and my mom were both from up north. I want to express my condolences to Wanda, Sonja and Gary for their loss. He was a very sweet man, and rest knowing he is in the arms of his maker. God be with you at this time.

I remember Uncle Bill as a very funny guy and always made me feel like I belonged to his family though I did not spend much time with him, Aunt Gloria and Uncle Bill sent cards during the Holidays... Jeff Paquette Sr.
