Bill was such a kind and caring man. I always admired how very devoted he was to his beautiful wife Barbara and all of his amazing sons and daughters and grandchildren. I loved how welcome I always felt in his home. I will always remember how funny he was, and how he always seemed to show such genuine interest in those he met. Sending love and prayers to Aunt Barbara and all the Conningtons and Forrestals.
