You were always so happy and always had a smile on your face whenever we saw each other. You always asked about my day and seemed to be generally concerned when my day wasn't going so well. You always tried to make me laugh whenever I felt down. And although we may not have had a lot of encounters, you have no idea how much it meant to me to know someone cared about my day. Your death is a tragic loss to the community, and your smile and laughter will be greatly missed. My condolences to your family and friends and to those that had the pleasure of knowing you. R.I.P you beautiful soul. ❤

Lots of love,
Cassandra and Dean

Billy never missed waiving and laughing as he walked by my office. We had many chats over coffee in the past yrs debating rules and government policies. I seemed to work him up but it was always great chats!!! The world lost one fine man. Rest in Peace my friend. Till we meet again
