Meet William Freeman

Ana Carolina González-Peña • February 08, 2024

My wife passed away last June after battling cancer. It was a tough time for both of us, and her absence is felt every day. We spent over five decades together, and Princeton became our home during that time. Despite the sorrow, I find solace in the fact that Princeton is a place I truly cherish. It’s a quiet and welcoming town with a low crime rate, making it a place where I’ve felt secure and content.

The recent focus of my efforts has been on putting my life back in order after her passing. Today, for instance, I’m fixing a flat tire on my truck, a small task but an essential one to keep me mobile. I’ve come to appreciate the simple joys of life and the importance of taking care of myself.

In this personal journey, I’m committed to maintaining a balanced diet, staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water, and ensuring I get enough rest. These small habits, I believe, contribute to a healthier and happier life. Despite the challenges, I’m determined to continue doing what I can to add more years to my life, honoring the memories of the wonderful years I shared with my wife in this town we both called home.
