ISMAY William Nixon (Bill) Violet, Kath and William would like to thank all family, friends, colleagues and William's customers for the cards, flowers and kind messages of condolence, which were greatly appreciated. We received comfort and strength from all your uplifting words. Thanks to everyone who shared stories and memories we have been overwhelmed by how many lovely positive comments have been made, remembering William as a gentleman, always smiling and a real character of Wigton. It is difficult for us to imagine how life is going to be without him. Grateful thanks to the staff at Wigton Medical Practice and to all at Wigton & Solway Health Service for everything they did to enable William to be at home until the end. Sincere appreciation to Melvyn for the warm, personal remembrances; to Canon Geoffrey Ravalde for a moving service and David and Peter Shingler for their contributions. Special thanks to everyone who braved the weather to pay their respects, your presence was a great comfort to us. Finally we would like to thank Jonny, Paul and all at Hill's Undertakers for the caring and sensitive way they supported us through a very difficult time. Please raise a glass to William (Bill) whenever the occasion presents itself.
