Default Bench for IrishMac

On behalf of my family I just want to thank everyone who donated for the bench. It truly looks great! A great big THANK YOU to Jim Holmes for donating his artwork for the bench. You did a wonderful job!! And to Iron Chef for getting the ball rolling on the memorial bench, you are a very kind man! I would also like to thank Jim Willis for the kind words he said at the bench dedication. It was very touching.

I am so glad that my daughter Kaitlin and I could make it for the dedication. It was difficult for us but it truly meant so much to all of us to know that Bill touched so many of you on the forum. I will try to pop in from time to time. We have the one year anniversary coming up on June 11th so things have been a bit difficult again. Keep us in your prayers.

Thank you again! You are all wonderful people.

Kathy

Bill was a decent guy, he is definitely missed around here. While I was happy to donate for a bench in Bill's honor, I'm sad that I was unable to attend the unveiling, and to meet you in person.

Best wishes for you and your family.

unfortunately we were unable to attend but we hope to get up to BG to see the bench.

Bill is certainly missed by his friends here.

Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I was down there last Friday and saw the bench - a very nice tribute to Bill.

I was lucky enough to be hanging out this weekend with Jim and Mike (as you know, Kathy.) We sent thoughts your way.

Hugs and prayers for you and the kids for the sad upcoming "anniversary" date ....Liz

Although I only briefly met him at last years cruise in, it was obvious what a great guy he was and how much he will be missed. Here are a couple pictures of the unveiling I took while i was there.
