Bill Travers with Girl and Boy
Bill was a wonderful and special human being.
He worked tirelessly helping to ease the suffering of animals.
It might also be added that he was a marvelous actor and could
express more with a look than most actors can with a hundred words!
His spirit remains alive through his kind deeds and accomplishments.
The world is a better place because Bill Travers lived in it.
