Dear Billy,

I miss you so much! You have been on my mind. It's April and beautiful outside! I miss your brand of sunshine. Simone is in the midst of wedding planning. It's going ok but I really miss you!! I miss you being here for this. I have felt a bit alone in this without you! I am sure you would be pleased with the touches and tributes to you. BJ is struggling a little but he is coming into his own. He is turning into a young man-quite handsome-like his Daddy! I know you are resting with the Almighty! And I am glad you are no longer suffering with pain. But I miss you, your sense of humor, your laughter and all of the calls about the kids or just about the political landscape of the country! I realize now how important our memories are. They are gifts that we can treasure, revisit and replay in our heads. I know you will be there in spirit July 11th when we give our daughter in matrimony! I am very happy that your brother, Tony is giving her away! You know I always told you that you had sisters and brothers and it was an amazing bond! Well, I've really been working on my bonds with my Siblings and it's coming along. God is Good! I now know that love does last and endures - We may change or alter how we share it, display it or even how we respect it. But this thing from the heart-the Godly part of our soul, it is real! So from my heart and soul, Rest Well! Love to you now and Always!

Your Wife,

Hi Billy. It's Vibb. I miss you still! Guess what? BJ is going to graduate early. Can you believe that? He hadn't said a word to me. I called Wendy to tell her! I was sooo excited. I know you would have been just as excited. Simone is busy getting on with her life. BJ is beginning to think about his future. I have kept my promise to you. I have been strong and worked really hard so that they can be in a good place and they are. I would be less than honest to say I don't miss you because I do. Of course, you were and are the love of my life. We had our share and then some of ups and downs. We remained friends, even at the end. I cherish that! I remember you said when I met someone to be sure they were worthy. I know you know my heart so I won't share everything in words. But I almost feel like you sent me some sunshine and happiness! And yes, I remember, we are to live until we die. So, I am living Billy. And you reminded me, everyday is a gift from God. I treasure everyday of our journey. And I'm pleased to treasure my current days. Rest well until we meet again! Feel my heart!

Billy, I still miss you!! This time of the year especially! Monie GRADUATED from AI!! I know you would have been right there cheering her on with me. I know that even now, you are as proud as I am! She did it. We talked about you that morning. I told her that I was sure you were proud and somehow you knew she had done it! Billy, not a single day goes by that I don't think of you. Christmas is difficult without your beautiful smile! I don't put up a live tree anymore. That was your specialty. Any time I see or smell a live tree, I feel your presence. Now, we have one more hurdle-our son-BJ. He's still smart but he is now a real TEEN! Shine some warm rays and peaceful waves our way. I promised to never forget you and I never will. And I remember our last talk-I know we are here not for our own purpose but we are gifted our time, our space and our breath by God. So rest easy my Dear! Always With Love,
Your Wife,

Billy, of course you are on my mind! It will be two years tomorrow since the Father called you home. I hope you know how much you are missed and how much you are still loved! Simone will be graduating this year! I know you would be happy for her. Now your son is in the 11th grade and he drives me crazy every morning-never wants to get up on time! He is such a joy! He really likes the girls now. We would have such a laugh! I am working and doing what I promised you. I know that you are resting and that God is using you to be a light and an inspiration in some way. I remember when we met and you rescued my heart! I now know that we belong to the Father and life is as you said-a gift and we are on a journey and hopefully we realize that we have a purpose and a mission. I am grateful that we shared a purpose and a mission even if but for a small span of time. So rest easy Billy.
Love Always!

Happy Father's Day Billy! We all miss you sooo much. Monie and Alston had their engagement party yesterday. It was very nice-Wendy and Em were there.
Everyone enjoyed themselves. I really missed you being there! Rest in peace.
Love you always!

Billy, It's Vibb! I think of you every day. Life has lost some of its flavor and zing without you! So many days I wish you were here to share a smile and a laugh about the kids! You made me promised to not forget you. I have not. We are all fine. Life is life but we really are ok. Things are not perfect but God is good! I feel you close by sometimes. We still love you! Everyday BJ reminds me so much of you! And so does Monie. Our girl is in love with a great young man from a good family. You would approve. Wendy and Tony have given their approval and I know you would be pleased. She is doing well. BJ is turning into a very nice young man. Your family has been great. I am most grateful. I don't want to stop talking to you. There's so much I want to say. I'm glad you are resting in Christ and free of pain. I'd be less than honest if I didn't say my life is not the same without you! So rest and don't you forget even now absent from your body, we remain connected and I will always love you.

Wild: You are truly missed but we know that you're with Mama. We followed your wishes and had a celebration party after your memorial service. We enjoyed eating, dancing and talking about you. REST IN PEACE my brother. I'll always love you.
