Billy was a family man totally dedicated to helping out those he loved the most.  I remember 1994 when going on holiday our car radiator overheated and while checking it out, Billy got a faceful of boiling water.  I was only a newbie learner, so he drove to the nearest garage where he doused his face in cold water.  Another motorist offered to lead us into the next town, where Billy could receive medical treatment.  When he got to hospital, the doctors wanted to transfer him back to our home town, but Billy said "No".  His wife and daughters Rachel and Tammi were waiting to arrive at a holiday camp.  After treatment and being smothered in silver cream he was discharged and allowed to carry on with the journey.  You always were our hero Billy and we'd just like to say that we miss you so much.  God Bless.

thinking of you most of the day today. Funny, when you don't have to worry, you still do. I suppose old habits must die hard, eh Billy? Hope you're well healed now and looking after our four kids there. We three here just wish you were all here with us. The girls talk a bit easier about you now, it's nice. Tell the kids we love them & tell your mum & dad we were asking after them. Until we're together, I remain

Started the Christmas shopping today honey. Got your sister's pressie. Bought Rachel her D.A.B. radio, but couldn't get Tammi's digi bopx. Will send her for it tomorrow maybe as they'll have some in then. Wish you were still here sharing our lives with us sweetie. Your death is the biggest hurt that we've ever felt. Till we're together again. We remain, your Lizzie, Rachel & Tammi. xxx
