We will miss Ada tremendously. With her spirit and dry sense of humour, she was always interested in what we were doing and what was happening in the community. You have been wonderful neighbours since we arrived in Foxboro Green in 1998. Every time I see a picture or carving of an owl – let’s face it, anything with owls!! – we will always think of Ada. We will cherish the time that we knew her. Bill, no one could have cared more than you, always working on her behalf. We hope warm memories will help ease the pain of loss for you and the family.

Bill, we are so sorry to hear of Ada’s passing away and our thoughts are with you and your family. You have been such a strength to Ada for so many years and you have always kept your sense of humour, We enjoyed our many times together over the past 19 years, our happy hours at your place, and our delightful visits on your deck. You are an important part of our lives and we care about you. And, remember those fun moments in Florida in our younger days! You taught me how to successfully slice up a small watermelon recently, and even did it for me. We’re here for you, always.
Wally and Linda

It was with great sadness that I learned of Ada’s passing. I always looked forward to seeing Ada at the dental office as she made me smile with her dry wit. I, for one, will greatly miss her. Bill – words fail me. You are truly a gem amongst men. Your dedication to Ada was second to none and a true lesson of love from which we can all learn. My deepest condolences to you and your family.

Condolence from Marg & Graham Macdonald sent on May 30, 2017

We will miss our Sunday afternoon visits and chats sometimes vigorous and sometimes not (especially politics!).
The early days of Foxboro when we swam together, worked on committees together and helped build the community. Those were the good days.
Latterly things were very tough!
We will miss you.
Bill, your care was so wonderful, You will really miss Ada but you could not have done more. You followed through on every problem to resolution wherever possible. Your patience and your caring was unbelievable. You could not have done more! Our love, Graham & Marg
