William's room was his self-portrait -- uniquely expressed on every wall was his love for music and art and friendship.

To all who knew them I am presenting a very meaningful opportunity: In Memory of my husband, Bill, and my son, William - and in the spirit of family and home and gathering...
Let's Build A House To Become A Home"
