Billy- the holidays are upon us and you are so missed! I've been through a little tough place but I'm ok. Wish I could hear you laugh and call me Vivian only the way you could! The kids are all good! I think of you always because you left such beautiful daughters and sons behind. I know you are at peace and rest. Hold my heart in your prayers and whispers to the Lord! My heart you still occupy.

Billy, It has been four years today since you left. I've missed you so much. I miss your sense of humor, our fussing one minute,loving and supporting each other the next. You and I were two peas in a pod. I know You, Mama, Mama Elsie, Daddy Lui, Gramp, Ann,Aunt Gladys,Uncle Charles,Uncle Vern, Claude and Your "boy""Holland" (Kenny) are together again. I talk with Vivian from time to time. They all seem to be doing well. Your children are doing well. You would be proud of them. I still talk with GBaby and Heehaw. We laugh and share stories about you.They have been true brothers to your sister and family. That would please you. Wendy and Tony are well, we talk about you and laugh often repeating some of your old sentences. I miss you and Mama sooooooooooooooooooo much. Life is so different. I can hear you saying Em, don't let that bother you, we good! Your words still echo in my mind, "Life is short. Enjoy yourself. Don't take everything so serious. Do some things, have some fun." I prayed so hard that you would be healed. You said "I want you to always remember this: Do you believe in God? And I answered yes, you said God doesn't make any mistakes." You are healed. I will forever be grateful to God for our years together and the love of family that we shared. YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN! It's football season,NCCU's homecoming is soon. You will be there in so many hearts! "WILD BILL" (LOL).I know you are talking a lot about the Presidential Campaign Race. MISSING YOU AND MAMA MORE THAN WORDS COULD EVER EXPRESS.

Today was sort of tough but it's almost over. Billy, I thought of you a million times today. I'm still holding on! I do miss your unwaivering friendship. I know you are resting. And I am happy that you are no longer in any pain. What I wouldn't give to have your ear hear all my concerns and my secrets. Somehow I think you know. The kids are young adults and doing well. They are on their own paths and I pray for them everyday. Your memory is sooo alive in them and me. While God holds you close I will press on. I miss you.

Billy, I know you would be jumping for joy! Our son is attending CPCC and working his first real job! He is sooo proud of himself. I wish you were here to cheer him on. I know somehow that you know he is doing well. I am so excited watching him come into his own. There is so much of you there. It comes out in his personality. We talk about you almost every day. I miss you Billy. I think no one will ever see me for who I am the way you did. I am grateful for our time together as husband and wife. I would be so lost without Simone and BJ. They ground me and give me purpose! Til we Meet Again-God Bless.

Time is moving by so quickly Billy! I attended Kenny's home going service. I'm sure you two are keeping each other company! I had a heart attack in April. I couldn't help but think of you. You would be so happy to know that BJ is doing well. We still remember you and the good times. God is good. I am preparing. God hold you close and I will do my best. I miss you and replay my precious memories often. Always yours...Vivian

My Dearest Billy,

We talked about you so much on January 10th! It was your birthday! BJ reminded me that he knew it was your birthday. We talked about the good times. I still think of you daily! You have not been forgotten.
I wish you were here to see BJ graduate from High School. He is finishing early! I am so proud of him and I remind him that you would be so proud of him too! Billy- 2012 seems such a long time but it is still fresh in my heart! Rest my Dearest! You will never be forgotten!

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,
