  1. Hazel and family, I’m so sorry for the loss of Billy. I know he is not suffering anymore, please know that you’re in my prayers for your healing and greiving time. I will always think of his silliness when you asks him how he was doing, his response was I can’t remember. He was always thoughtful giving all the ladies at church on valentines day a box of candy.

  2. All of us on Dorset Road have fond memories of Billy on his scooter with Prissy in the basket. Later Curly and Irie would rush to him for pats on the head and their treats. He was interested in everyone. A very giving person, Billy shared vegetables from his large backyard garden. He loved his Pomeranians King and Prince, staying home with them when Hazel went on vacation. Billy was never at a lack for words. His sense of humor carried him through the effects of polio and every other obstacle in his path. Godspeed, Billy.
