    Billy was a lovely man, gentle and kind, and had a great sense of humor. Shirley, I am so sorry for your loss but know you are comforted by the knowledge that Billy is no longer suffering the frailties of this life. He is home. I can just picture him and David rejoicing together! My love to all who loved and will miss Billy.
