A Little Mixed Up
Just a line to say I'm Living
That I'm not among the dead
Tho I'm getting more forgetful
And more mixed up in my head
For sometimes I can't remember
When I stand at the foot of the stairs
If I'm going up for something
Or if I've just come down from there
And before the frig, so often
My poor mind is filled with doubt
Have I just put the food away
Or did I come to take it out?
And there are times when it's dark outside
With my night cap on my head
I don't know if I'm retiring
Or just getting out of bed.
So if it's my turn to write you
There's no need of getting sore
I may think that I have written
And don't want to be a bore.
So remember, I do love you
And I wish that you were here
But now it's nearly mail time
So I must say goodbye, my dear
Then I stood side the mailbox
With my face so very red
Instead of mailing you my letter
I have opened it instead.
At her request, services will be private with interment in Smithtown Cemetery, Seabrook, NH. Arrangements are by H.L. Farmer & Sons Funeral Homes and Cremation Service, Haverhill - Bradford. To share a memory please visit www.farmerfuneralhomes.com.

He received his B.S. in Biology and Chemistry from Boston University, master's in Science and Chemistry from Salem State College, Ph.D. degree in Pathology and Cytology from Columbia, as well as a Ph.D. in Holistic Studies.
In 1954 he married Phyllis Ann Muldoon, as their family grew he continued his education and worked in hospital labs detecting cancer and teaching student Nurses at Lynn Hospital. He opened his own Cytology lab where he worked in cancer detection for many local doctors and invented a new way to collect specimens, the Cyto-cone which made it easier for patients and doctors.
After moving to West Newbury in 1967, Bill was able to realize a lifelong dream and became a "gentleman farmer," he was determined to raise his children on a small farm, which instilled a lifelong work ethic in them. In the 1970s he embraced organic farming practices and the family raised their own food-truly farm to table. He took flying lessons at Plum Island airport to reconnect with his love of aviation-landing him the nickname, Wingman. He loved travel and especially his time in Eleuthra, Bahamas.

He was the Pastor of the Rand Memorial Church in Seabrook, N.H., for several years and later in Hinsdale and Nottingham, N.H.
In retirement, Bill kept busy researching his new passion, ancestry, which stayed with him for the rest of his life. He traveled to Salt Lake City to do research at the Family History Library, this led him to the discovery of the North Branch Cemetery in Antrim, N.H., where many of his kinfolk were laid to rest.
In 1987 he reconnected with a former student, Ann Smith and they were soon married. They enjoyed 15 happy years until Ann's passing. Bill settled Amesbury, Mass., and lived independently in the Heritage Towers where he made many friends and was dearly loved.
