Valerie Alston told me yesterday that the memorial service for Bill will be on Nov. 2 at 11am in Syracuse, NY. There has been a delay because a grandson has been leading a wilderness expedition. I have no other particulars yet, but Valerie said she will keep me posted, and I will post another message when I find out.
Valerie’s eyesight is too poor to read the many wonderful tributes to Bill, but one of her grandchildren is going to read them to her. I will make sure she sees them. Valerie is deeply appreciative of all the support she has received. I am not a blogger, but I have read these tributes with great love and comfort, and I know so many of you feel the same way.
