Bill and Lidie have been a part of our family life for decades, going back to the Wellington Street town homes in Sarnia in the sixties! Mom and Dad, Aileen and Ray McDonald were good friends of Bill and Lidie. We recall the parties that were held in our basement on Devine Street. Lots of fun together throuout the years and lots of support by Bill as he was quite the handy man. In our home at the lake, he came and helped us get the new doors to hang properly and always had a smile and a story too! We send our love and prayers to Lidie and family.

Garry and Mary Ellen McDonald and family
