William Lum

Family Tribute:Bill was a wonderful son, brother, and friend. As the eldest of five sons, he was a role model for the others. His sense of humor, thoughtful nature, and desire to stay close to family and friends are traits for which he was greatly admired. Bill enjoyed this closeness with family and friends as he could always be counted on to call to say “Hi!”, send a humorous e-mail or plan a get-together. His ability to be a great friend is evidenced in the fact that maintained 20-year relationships with friends from Bryant College.

Bill enjoyed life. He enjoyed sharing his love of New York City with his family and friends, as he would always find interesting places around the city to visit and dine. In fact, he planned a particularly special party at Windows on the World for his mother’s 60th birthday. Bill’s love of life extended beyond New York City, as he was an avid traveler. He loved helping people with their own travel plans, as he was always available to give advice on where to go and what to see. His family is especially grateful for his planning of the family vacations.

Bill’s family will always remember him in their hearts and their daily thoughts. He will always be missed.

More than a moment of silence, on this day and everyday may we use our lives to honor and respectfully remember you. With careful consideration we continue on where you could have gone, good left undone, countless gifts not given. We will not fail; we will not forget you, our precious family, our dear friend, our inspiration. Patricia & Charles Barraza

With a terrible sadness we mark this day, the third anniversary of the morning we lost each of you. In the end it is only a marker. The grief, sorrow and the incredible possibilities that we lost in those horrific moments remain with us every day. We weep, no, sob from a place deep, deep inside that has been left empty by your absence. And we pray, for you, your families, your friends, and your colleagues. And for ourselves may God give us the strength to go forward and honor you with our lives. We will never forget you. Patricia Barraza

Remembering - Just today I was looking at the picture from our summer 2001 outing where we were standing together smiling. I can remember that day so vividly, laughing and sharing that group moment. I wanted to write to say we remember you and think of you as we go on. We miss your being, but feel your presence. I believe that your spirit is our angel watching over us in a dangerous world. Remembering you keeps you with us and brings us peace in turmoil. In this season of renewal and everyday since we “lost” you we keep you and your loved ones in our thoughts and prayers. Peace to you.

The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; He guideth me in straight paths for His name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. For Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou hast annointed my head with oil; My cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. THE TWENTY-THIRD PSALM May Bill dwell in the company of Angels and our Lord in Life everlasting. Andrew Poy Stephen Wyatt Michael & Laura Klug

Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the softly falling snow. I am the gentle showers of rain. I am the fields of ripening grain. I am the morning hush. I am the graceful rush of beautiful birds in circling flight. I am the star shine of the night. I am the flowers that bloom. I am in a quiet room. I am the birds that sing. I am in each lovely thing. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there.I did not die.' ...Mary Frye, Baltimore MD, Circa 1933 Alive in our hearts forever...
