My deepest sympathy to the family, I have known Billy and his family for many moons, when we all live in the same area, our children knew each other. Billy was a good man, now his pain is over, may he rest in peace. God Bless.

Billy we were together for 52 years and they were the most precious times that I ever had. We did a lot of travelling and met a lot of wonderful people. I hope you are peaceful where you are right now because you are no longer suffering.
I will always love you and one day we may meet again.
