    Marie and Biny….I am so sorry for your loss. Words are not enough to express how much I feel for both of you right now.

    I loved Bill dearly and it is so sad when we lose such a bright light and loving person.

    I’ll always remember Bill’s kindness, sense of humour and funny stories. I am crying and laughing as I write this, as I can’t help but remember the laughter we shared together. He was such an amazing person that brought happiness to everyone he met in this world.

    I know that God has big plans for Bill right now, and he will continue to be a great influence on all of our lives.
    He’ll always be there keeping an eye out for both of you and reminding us to laugh a little along the way….even during challenging times like these.

    All my love…..Heather

  3. I am offering my condolences to Aunt Marie and Biny on Bill’s passing.

    Uncle Billy was a wonderful person and he will be greatly missed. He made a big impression the first time I met him as a young child in North Sydney and that impression continued whenever I had the opportunity to see him in person. His laughter, funny stories, and wonderfully relaxed and kind nature will be missed but also cherished.

    I’ll miss you Uncle Billy and I love you.
