My life changed the day Billy and I met at our kids hockey game. He helped me raise my kids for 16 years and we will never forget that or him. He loved us as much as we loved him, he was truly a genuinely kind man who always made you laugh and smile. We send our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time, may he rest in eternal peace with our Lord.
