Robby, Jayson, Kim ,Kirk and families so sorry to hear of the passing of your father and step-father. My family and I have some great memories of Bill and I'm sure you all have great memories.

To Eleanor and all the family of Mr. Pinsent:
Please accept my sincerest sympathy . Although I didn’t know Bill very well his parents were very dear to my parents. Bill was a great friend to my mother and they often had great laughs together. Hopefully, you will all remember the great memories you have of him and I wish you peace of mind in the days to come.
