My Uncle Billy was a kind Hearted Man for sure. As kids my brothers and I would go stay with our mother for the summer out in Ballico and I dont remember one day that my Uncle Billy ever yelled or was angry for anything and I know we did things we were not suppose to lol but not once did I ever see him upset with anything we did. He was always kind. He loved talking to all us kids, me and my brothers and his kids and all my cousins and hanging out with us. My only wish is that I could have spent more time with him. I love you Uncle Billy with all my heart and soul and I’m going to miss you dearly.
