I was very fortunate for this wonderful family to help with childcare of my daughter. As a single mom, I could always rely on Frances and Bill, Angie, Annette, Tammy and their spouses to be a caring, fun, patient and loving support system for my child, and for me as well. They didn’t have to babysit, they did it to help us as I could pay little. I remember Bill telling me once how he couldn’t read the newspaper with my daughter Shana there; because she loved to sneak up and smack it and run. They made a fun game of it. I’m sure there are many wonderful memories of Bill to be shared. He will be missed. Much love and understanding for the Billy Buchanan family. Love, Betty and Shana❤️

Billy would always share "What's for Dinner/Supper". He would make me so hungry. I told him one day I would show up and eat Supper with him and Frances. He said come on, there is always enough. He made me an Honorary Buchanan. Which was a great honor. You'll be eating Supper with God tonight Billy. I will miss you so much. Fly high my Sweet Friend.
