William Franklin Conley, you truly will be missed. You came into my sister’s life and turned it upside down and right side up, again. They say we choose our partners for what is missing in our lives, yet I truly believe that we choose our partners for permission to shine. We should all be lucky enough to find the one person who brings out the best in us. With you by her side Irene was allowed to shine as a nurturing mother of three boys, a respectfully loving and dutiful daughter, a caregiver for your “Special Sister-in-Law, and an absolutely awesome grandmother. Without hesitation, you stood by her side and become a “Dad” to three boys, a son-in-law, a jokester named “Willie”, and Pop.

Uncle Will gave my children memories that will last a lifetime. Sundays known as “sticker days”, for Ian and Chris knew that a trip to Granny has also meant more stickers and activity books. Christmas meant Aunt Irene’s shortbread and Uncle Wills’s trains. Aubrey remembers you trying to keep your eyes open on the living room sofa after working those late hours on Saturdays yet you tried to be sociable when all you wanted was to go to bed.

You were always there when a call for help went out. When the hospital released John after his leg surgery here, I was with a little brown car; a five year old and one in the belly and without thinking twice about it you volunteered to drive him to your house for Thanksgiving Dinner and followed me home afterwards. This is just one time you were there when we needed you. Thanks for being a thoughtful brother-in-law.

Since her departure at the age of seven in 1955, all Irene ever wanted was to return to her beloved mountains. Once again, with you by her side she returned to those beloved mountains of hers and the slower pace of life.

You built a life only to have the cloud of Alzheimer’s take it slowly away. When the mind dies first, the names, dates, places in the scrapbook of an entire life fade into mists of non-recognition is how they described this horrible disease. I wonder if you knew when you chose that spunky redhead all those years ago that memories are sacred to her.

My sister the family historian treasures the photos of days gone by and keeps them in a bookcase you found for her.

Thank you, Will for choosing my sister as your partner and making her life full. Our family was lucky to have you in it. When asked, do they remember me … “The Heart Remembers”.

My Grandmother, his Aunt Catherine, loved him so much, I'm sure they are all up in heaven having a cigarette and laughing.

RIP Will you will always be in our hearts.

Dearest Irene and Adrienne. I happened to do a Google Search and learned of Will's passing. I remember Will as a friendly, welcoming, kind man. Even though I have learned of his passing several years late, I am glad to know he is at peace. Please know I am praying that you are comforted and doing well. I have a picture of Adrienne and me on my desk still. I think of you and Adrienne frequently with great fondness. She will always be my favorite person ever at St. Peter's and you and Will my favorite family. Sending my love and thoughts for you all. Nancy Van Horn, St. Peter's Adult Learning Center
