In the special quiet that only snow storms bring I read the BC High magazine to discover the sad news. With the 50th BC High reunion looming in just a few months, you will be missed. So many happy high school memories and ventures to keep a perpetual smile on my face. What a gift.

I Last saw Billy Boy as a Fugitive from Justice.We dinned in the North End and talked of my return to MCI CONCORD.He mailed the Parole Board a rare letter attesting to my recent sobriety,YOU CAN HANDLE IT TOMMY MY BOY,but try and realize your own self worth this time.What a great man.

Father Billy Scanlan, always my friend, always seeing the best in others and forgiving the worst. In his darkest moments, his concern for others was always paramount in his mind...sometimes to the point of frustration to his friends.

A fine man....better by half than the best among us. I am lessened by his departure as are we all.

We first met Fr. Bill when he was a priest at Our Lady of Mercy, Belmont. Our sons served as alter boys while he was there. He married our four children and we have kept in touch through the years. He was very special to our family and we are saddended by his failing health and death. He will be missed. Rest in peace Bill.
