    Dear Sheryl,
    We were so sad to get Jeanne’s news of the passing of Bill.
    His friendly smile and love for our grandchildren was always so good for us to see, the very few times we saw one another.
    We wish you strength and courage going forward. Hopefully we will see you next year when life returns to some sort of normality.
    Kind regards,
    Frankie and Robert

    It has been a joy to know Bill & Sheryl McCafferty for nearly forty years. Always so cheerful, generous and full of faith. They showed us many kindnesses over the years. Bill was a big supporter to Bobby in achieving his Eagle Scout goal. We cherish a hand-carved Jerusalem Cross they brought to us from a pilgrimage to the Holy land. We know that Bill is with the angels, accompanied by the many prayers of those who loved him. We send Sheryl our prayers in this difficult time.

    Hello Sheryl,

    The last time I saw you and Bill was at my mother’s house shortly after she died. I had an enjoyable conversation with Bill. He was a great man and lived a full and worthwhile life. My parents were always very fond of both of you. My condolences to you.
