Though our time was short, you always made me feel welcome, not ever judging. I’ll carry our memories of shopping for birthday presents, and late night chitchats with me. You surely will be missed wholeheartedly. I know you’re looking down, watching and guiding. Truly, loved and truly blessed and forever missed.

I don’t know where to begin. When I think back (decades) when I was still figuring out who I was, you opened your doors, judgement free, and accepted me for me. I will miss you stories from Scotland, rants of hating Trump, and your jokes. You were the dad I dreamed of having. You were an amazing person, with a heart of gold, and you will be truly missed.

William was a wonderful husband, father and friend. He was a true gentleman, a strong Scottish man, incredibly funny and kind man. He will be missed and loved. May he Rest In Peace and join Hen and Billy in heaven. Thank you for all the wonderful memories William!

Mr. Billy B! I will remember you for many things but most of all your cat like reflexes, being quick as a fox and your sense of humor in all things! Always good for a joke and a kind word (except the President), your Scottish accent and love of Scotland endeared you to me in more ways than you can imagine. The world was a better place because you were in it and it will seem a little darker now that you are gone. I will keep you close in my heart always! I know you are with Hen and Billy once again and you are happy. Until we meet again <3
