    Thanks for the many years of friendship. Your memory will live on. We had lots of laughs and good times. Regardless of blood kinship, proud to say that you will always be “Uncle Bill” to me. Rest in peace, and may God bless your family that you loved so much.

    Today, I rejoice in knowing that my friend, Billy, is in Paradise with his beloved Dot. While he will be missed by his loving family and friends, there is comfort in the fact he loved the Lord, and he lived a good life. Rest in Peace, my friend. Until we meet again.
