    Billy, I valued your presence in my life more than you could ever know. You were a great family sounding board and I will forever miss our long conversations. The soul that suffers is stronger than the soul that rejoices. I know we will re-unite one day. May you rest in peace. Your loving sister, Patty

    Billy, the relationship you had with my wife, your sister, was always something I treasured. It's a sad day for both Pat and I that part of our lives have forever been changed. Your varied and deep intellect always amazed me. In your passing you take all the earthly knowledge with you, for this the world is a less enlightened place. I will miss looking forward to another salt water fishing trip with you in Florida. He gave thee, He took thee, He will restore thee. Your loving brother-in-law, Al
