Dolores Thiessen - August 22, 2023

It is with a heavy heart that I'm hearing about Bill's passing. We met online as a result of both of us losing our spouses around the same time. Being from Winnipeg, we had many phone conversations about our broken hearts and we knew what each other was going through. Bill was a huge support and friend to me for which I will be forever grateful. Our mutual love for the Toronto Maple Leafs was always fun to discuss. I will miss our analysis of what we thought the team needed. My sincere condolences to the family, especially to his grandchildren whom Bill would always tell me that they were his world. RIP buddy! 💔
