Kyle WilliamKYLE, William 'Bill' - When you are 92, nothing happens 'suddenly'. The passing of our father came quickly for a man who prided himself on never getting sick and for being active right to the very end. He would look around the hospital and remark that it was full of old, sick was "no place for him."

In late October our father was diagnosed with a brain tumour; a ticking time bomb whose fuse was lit long before we discovered it if not for the slurred speech and loss of memory. It's just one of those things you ignore and chalk up to 'getting old'.  That's the thing about life; It is fragile, precious and unpredictable and each day is a gift, not a given right. He lived a healthy, active life...he was a gardener in a landscape of imperfection.
