    Williams family…I am so sorry for your loss (and he’d just had his birthday at Christmas too). He was a great story teller and a great neighbour who will be missed by many (more than you may realize). He kept the neighbours all informed because he cared about them. “Last of the 8th line”

    Our deepest sympathy to the entire Williams family. We saw Lorne briefly on Christmas Day at the Manor. When we bought our first farm on the 8th line, the first visitors were Uncle Edgar, & Aunt Annie. (Lorne’s parents) Lorne’s father & my grandfather were brothers. Another cousin gone but not forgotten.
