  8. Doris-Jane Smith and Glen scott Smith from Lincolndale, N.y. Ol St. Agnes Kids says:

    Rita and Bill I was saddened to read of Billys passing. I have and so does Glen-Scott so manyfantastic memories of the kids at St. Agnes in the old days. Also our P>U>S>H> activities that brought us all together for support. Those kids will always have a place in our hearts and surely Billy will now have even a bigger place in our memories. May your memories sustain you at this sad time, Love \’The Smiths

  9. Bob Weeks Jr says:

    Billy was a great brother-in-law! I remember the first time I met him at Bill & Reta\’s house for Thanksgiving 1990. He had the word, CRASH, carved into the hair on the side of his head and a big smile on his face. What a character!

    Another year, while driving to our house with another wheelchair-bound person, they got lost and his car broke down. Finally, they made it. Just another adventure for Billy.

    He had so many challenges, yet he tried to deal with them in his own way, independently.

    Billy, I appreciate how you accepted me as a member of your family like your parents and siblings. I\’ll miss you.

    Love, Bob

    Billy\’s Free

    Expected, yes
    Yet unexpected.
    Just a breath away,
    It crept up upon you.
    With cat-like stealth,
    It stalked you
    Without so much as
    A \
