Mary, Heather and Liam. I was so shocked when Paris mentioned that Bill had died. He was such a lovely gentle soul who adored his family. I am out of the province until Oct 8 but will be in touch after that. Janette and Paris

Dear Mary and family, and all the Jardine families, I am so saddened today to hear about Bill’s sudden passing. Being in his age group, my only memory of him is hanging out in the same places with our common friends on Bell Island in the mid-60s, and Bill & Mary were a couple then. I believe Bill and Dorothy were the only Jardines who did not stay with my family while they were going to school in St. John’s. My mom loved all of you like you were her own! Graham and I are thinking of you all as you go through this difficult time.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Jardine family. May You rest in eternal peace Bill.

It was a great shock and very sad to hear of Bill’s passing. I was very fortunate to have known Bill and work with him at N L Housing for a number of years.

We shared many great times together along with other friends and co-workers that will leave us with eternal fond memories and a warm smile in our hearts. Deepest sympathies to Mary and family. Bill will always be in our prayers and memories. God bless.

I am shocked and saddened to read this news. It was only a week or two ago that I ran into Bill in a lineup for a coffee. It was so nice to see him and to have a chat. I had the pleasure of working with him at Housing for many years. Rest In Peace, Bill. My deepest condolences to your family and friends.

Dearest Mary and JARDINE families.Words are never enough to express the sadness you and the family must be experiencing at this difficult time.

To Mary and Family and the Murphy and Jardine families. It’s been a long time since I saw most of you, probably 1967 during my college years.. But I still feel a kinship with many of you because I also am a fellow Bell Islander and knew most of you.

My deepest sympathy on the passing of Bill, a true gentleman. May the great memories he created sustain all of you during this difficult time,
