ADD A MEMORY

We have many great memories of Billy, under that sometimes grumpy exterior was a kind heart and the willingness to help no questions asked. We enjoyed many Birthday, Christmas and Anniversary celebrations with the family and Billy was always happiest surrounded by his family and friends.
Those memories will be shared over the next while, some will bring a laugh and some a tear, but they will all be good memories.

Our love to all the family.

Thank you for being you Dad.
Thank you for loving your family the way you did. We all appreciate the hard decision you made to give your family a better life.
Thank you for accepting a "Yank" into the family. I know it was hard but Jake's love of Soccer won you over in the end.
Im so sorry we couldn't be there to say goodbye. It's hard to comprehend that you're not there anymore. But I know you are with Uncle Jim and you are finally at peace. Nora didn't get to meet you, but she will know you.
We miss you and will always love you.
Nicole, Jake and Nora xoxo

Dear Uncle Bill,

I will miss our Christmas memories the most, and the laughs we all shared on Christmas Eve's. When Nora is older, I will do my best to share with her fun memories we had with her mum and yourself.

I just can hear your voice in my head. And I'll be singing Feliz Navidad the proper way for you this year and all years ahead.
Thank you for always being so kind to me. I know you will be watching over Auntie Anne always.
Love Claire xo

Billy you were my love for 55 years, my how they have flown. In that time we had 3 children of which we are so proud, 2grandsons that anyone would be proud of, and then comes a granddaughter Nora, you always wanted a little girl, but she will get to know you second hand. You will be greatly missed by everyone, but especially by me. I know we didn’t get to spend our golden years as we wanted, but we were together. This is the hardest goodbye I’ve ever had to say. Til we meet again all my love.
