I'm very saddened to see that "Mr H" has left us,but he has left his family,loved ones and friends with a lot of good and happy memories. For me personally,I will remember going over to the house at Chapel St.,always being welcomed with a lot of love and laughter. He would encourage me to help myself to his homegrown grapes,entertaining me by showing me how he could make his dog yawn-just by rubbing the paw! He always enjoyed calling me "Irishman",and for years growing up when I would stop at the house,he would always ask me "how's the wife,and how many kids now"...and he would laugh when I changed the numbers! I wish over the years I took the time to stop and visit,I'm sure he would have enjoyed seeing the photo album from my trip to Ireland in 2011..My sincerest sympathy and condolences go to Nick,and the extended families. Bill,Helen and Kathy are reunited,and are never far in thoughts,but forever in my heart! Much love and Best Wishes!!
