Gus and I are both very sad and very glad for this news. We both loved him tremendously. Gus has memories of all the fun they shared waterskiing( and other things too I am sure). I have always admired the love this man displayed for everyone and his incredible spirit. It must have been a long painful last six months. So we celebrate his leaving and know we will see him soon. I am sure there will be a great car and a fast boat in heaven with Billy there to show us a good time. But for now we mourn the loss of this friend . We have been praying that he is now seamlessly in heaven.

Mary Ann and family... I feel so fortunate to have watched your family throughout the years. You all have always been in my prayers even though physically we have not been together as much as we were years ago. That seems like a lifetime ago ... then again it seems like just a little while ago. I was with you at the being of Billy’s journey with Cancer, and my sweet girl... you two fought it as hard as any couple I have ever seen. Your children are so very lucky to have had you two as examples of love, life, and the conviction of going through bad as well as good. I’m very lucky to have watched from afar. Billy was such a cute little boy... full of life and curiosity..... he grew to be such a courageous man. God bless you all today and everyday (as he has always). Your friend. Ann
