Billy, every morning I wake up hoping that you're not really gone. Though I've only known you four years I can't really remember you not being a part of my everyday. I love you more than you couldve known and I miss you more than I can describe. The people who were lucky enough to really know you were very blessed and those who didn't really missed out on something special. Rest in peace sweet man....

Bill, Rita & family, It saddened me to hear of Billy Chad's death. You know how much I loved that "little guy"!! I'm not sure how I survived babysitting him and Brad those few summers, but they were the best!! I am sorry I could not attend any of the services. My prayers go out to all of you as you grieve his death.

We love and cherish all the wonderful memories ... Jordan's football game, playing outside, haircuts in the yard, movies,and birthday parties... could go on and on.
