Title: A few photos from a happier time.
Post by: WGB on 20 October 2012, 01:37 AM
My wife died of her Colon Cancer 3 weeks ago but she was wanting to see her last unmarried daughter hitched before she went.
This occurred 2 1/2 weeks before she died and I include a few photos of my cars as we were too miserable to spend money on limousines when I think my cars are better anyway.

The bride and I arrived as passengers in my 6.9 and here is a photo travelling through town (with flower girl in a booster seat in the front and my other son-in-law driving)

Teddy was misbehaving

So we had to stop around the corner and put things right

Then make the grand entrance

The 6.9 burbled beautifully across the park

I did however pay for the Limo's at the next not so happy family occasion 3 weeks later

What a shock Bill, that was very upsetting to read. I had no idea this was a possibility, thinking the last time I read something about it, she was in remission after a few ups and downs. I honestly thought everything was ok. We've only met briefly once and ofcourse I never met your wife but such was or is the online community that despite my own absence even my wife knew about WGB, the AMG 6.9 with Babe number plates and your wife. She was as shocked as I was, our condolences to you and your family.

Indeed, thanks for the update, Bill.

I'm very sorry to hear that news, and I wish you the best of luck for this difficult phase.

Very nice photography, and the wedding must have been magic, the vehicle procession captured very nicely.

Hi Bill,

Please accept my sincere sympathies for the loss of your wife.    I understand from my own experience how you must be feeling Bill, life has its ups and downs but time has a way of easing the pain.

Congratulations on your daughters marriage to the "Spray Painter". Hope to see how he finishes the job on the 450

Thanks for sharing your special moments with us.

Regards

Robert

Thanks guys for the comments.

She was still my best mate even though (like most women) she had no time for 116's.

We know exactly what you mean Bill, last night had a friend over and she fell asleep from me and her boyfriend talking about w116s.
Guess what!? my old QLD licence plates for my car ended in "BAB"!, I know its not quite your 6.9 but it makes me think it used to be. :)

My most profound condolences. No words can substitute, but know that friend from the other side of the world is thinking of you with a heavy heart.

Kindest Regards
