The Ensigns were wonderful neighbors on Vincent Road.
Their home was warm and inviting. Our love and sympathy

Our prayers are with you. Carolyn Wortham

Kind of grew up with all the Ensigns at Northminster Presbytertian Church, Bill was a wonderful friend and listen and enjoyed life so much. Enjoyed walking thru the gardens that he was so proud of and listening to stories he always had to tell. i can hear him now singing Happy Birthday in his own special way.wba He was always thinking of others and enjoying people. Prayers are with family and loved ones during this difficult time but also celebrate his wonderful love of life and people

Bill and Elaine were such wonderful friends and mentors for me at Northminster. I admired their spirit, activism, and great sense of fun. Soup and bread at their home, with good conversation, and talk about books and life in general, are wonderful memories. My love to Elaine, and the rest of the family, prayers as you go through the next days and weeks
Love and Peace
