“I’ve been trying for days to write about how amazing William is, but to know him was to love him. He didn’t have a mean bone in his body. He may have tried but it would turn into him laughing with his infectious laugh! He was always the first one to put every one else first. He made the most tedious tasks fun like driving my teenage daughter Addi around.They would bicker about who was cooler & who knew the best newest music out. The world is a dimmer place without him here, but we all now have the brightest Angel in Heaven! He gets to watch over us all & I’m sure laugh at us. He will be forever missed and never forgot!Love you always my crazy Wild Card!Till we meet again keep holding down heaven!”

“Words cannot explain the shock and emotion I feel when hearing of Billy’s passing. I was there the day he was born and was always around for the first 15 years of his life. Billy and Kris were always with each other. I can remember all the vacations we took with each other to Myrtle Beach, Gatlinburg, Wilmington etc. He was like a second son to me for so long. Even though we have not been as close in the later years it still breaks my heart. My prayers and condolences go out to Lisa, Amanda, Ed, Marge and the rest of the family.”

“I haven’t known Will for long, I met him last year, through my son, Matt. They had become good friends and when I met him it was like I knew him forever, he was one of the special ones that you felt nothing but kindness and love radiate from him. He had such a beautiful smile that lit up the room. I am so glad I had the pleasure of meeting him but I wish he wouldn’t of been taken so soon and would of been here longer for all that loved and cared for him. My son was a very close friend to him and Will told us the same about Matt. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.. R.I.P Will you will forever be missed and never forgotten! Shannon and Frank Cullen”

“So sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers.”
