I am planting for Willem “Bill” Stoel

Bill was a Dutch resident during the war. He was a teenager, with his parents living and working in Indonesia. His parents were interred in a prisoner of war camp in Indonesia, while Bill was sent to live with strangers in Amsterdam. Bill and his parents survived the war, and Bill emigrated to Canada as a young man with his wife. Bill met my mother in his 70s and they were together for over 20 years until Bill died in 2018.
