I received the most beautiful card from your Baby today Bill. The note reminded me of all the years we have been there for each other. We never dreamed we would both suffer the loss of our mates, but here we are...... I will always be there for Bonnie as she has been there for me. And it will always be Bonnie & Bill and Becky & Bob. You two boys look out for each other now and know that we will be there. With love,

I know we had our differences but in the end we always knew we loved each other. You are the only man that has never let me down. No matter what I needed or wanted you always jumped through hoops to get it for me. The love you showed mom, Ashley and me even in your last days was overwhelming and we will never forget you. I know we all have a very special angel to look over us. I love you so much and will see you again some day.

Your daughter, Tami.

I first met Billy when I was 12 yrs. old. We would race up and down our street and since he could never beat me, we continued the race for a life together of 42 yrs. He has been a part of my life for so long I won't know what to do without him. He was a wonderful father, a great husband, and his love for Ashley was endless. I love him so much and I will miss him every day of my life until I finally meet him again in our heavenly home. Don't walk too fast, Baby, just give me time to catch up. I will always love you.
