Guestbook

  1. Bill was one of the first people we talked to driving thru SLV before we moved there in 2018. He was always so friendly when my husband Dan & I would go for our daily walks. He would kiddingly call me 844 before he finally started calling me Susan. He was a good, kind man that will surely be missed in our neighborhood.
    As ever,
    Susan O’Connor
