Guestbook

Feel no guilt in laughter, he'd know how much you care. Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share. You cannot grieve forever; he would not want you to. He'd hope that you could carry on the way you always do. So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared, The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared. Let memories surround you, a word someone may say Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day, That brings him back as clearly as though he were still here, And fills you with the feeling that he is always near. For if you keep those moments, you will never be apart And he will live forever locked safely within your heart. Unknown

Maureen May all your fantastic memories fill the emptiness created by Billy's passing. He was one hell of a guy who, like his father before him , just totally enjoyed "living" We have all been so fortunate for having shared so much together along the way !!! Up the Hill, Church Street, North Pond, Onset, the Dolphin. You guys were a great team so great for each other! Paul

Dear Maureen, I only heard yesterday of the passing of Billy. Jocelyn was in church and heard the news. I am so sorry. Some of my earliest & fondest memories are of your mom & dad and your wedding day. Your kindness to me and my family over the years meant so much. Although I did not see much of him over the years I will miss him and he will forever have a special place in my heart. You and the boys are in my thoughts and prayers. I love you.
