    I had a very enjoyable visit at Sequim with Bill and Denise and the beauty of Port Townsend and Lake Crescent.
    As Denise’s sister, I’d to share how much we all enjoyed Bill’s visits with our family in Washington State.

    We were very blessed to have gotten to know Bill through our sister in life Denise. As their relationship grew (Denise & Bill's) as did ours with Bill. We spent many wonderful hours sharing stories and laughter over fine food and wine. When they...  more

    Bill Timme, to me, was a friend and co-worker at Doyon, Limited. We were there early after the passage of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA), and it was an exciting time for those of us working for Doyon. Bill occupied an...  more
