Bill and Betty were two of the loveliest people I have ever known, so gracious, so cheerful. They adored their children and shared news of their accomplishments with such joy

Arriving in Kent Court in1983 just across the street from Bill and Betty, with two young children and a third on the way, we were made to feel very welcome by the Commerfords. Over the years we developed a high regard for both Bill and Betty. We were so lucky to have our children grow up in a pleasant neighborhood with such wonderful neighbors just across the street. After Betty passed away Bez visited Bill often. Bill was a great conversationalist and a delight to chat with. It was good see Bill take comfort from the company of his energetic little dog Coco. After his accident and move to the Mercy retirement center in Oakland Bez was able to visit him from time to time and to see first hand that he was happy there and well cared for. Bill was indeed fortunate to have caring family nearby to keep him company and to ensure that all his needs were met. Since we now live in Manhattan and unable to attend the memorial service we send our condolences and best wishes to Bill’s family. Bez and Dorothy Khosrovi Zahra, Shari and Daniel
