We visited Digby every summer while I was growing up and I always looked forward to seeing my Uncle Billy more than anything. My heart is broken knowing he's no longer here. I will forever have cherished memories of my time with Uncle Billy. I'm sure jealous of the reunion going on in Heaven. Till we see eachother again, love you always xo

I was fortunate to have worked with Bill years ago at the Mountain Gap. He was always smiling, and if you weren't then he would make you. With either a joke or just a funny antic, he was always there to make you smile and share a laugh.
