  • Hi William Edward Gray, I was researching a Victorian photographer, and came across your name too....I sent you a poppy, and write to thank you for your life. What a silly, rotten waste. You look like a good man, and doesn't the world need more of you. Sending you a kiss in heaven, god bless. Angie
