Bill:

We miss you every single day. You were the joy of every gathering, making us laugh and have fun just with your presence. We will always feel your presence through the memories, the precious memories. I look forward to the day when we meet again and you can fill us in on all that you have been up to. I know you have been entertaining the angels. We love you and we miss you every single day. I can hardly believe it has been almost three years.

Love,

I WANT TO SEE ONE OF YOUR HILARIOUS TEX MESSAGES! BAU QUOCK!! I COULD EVEN HANDLE HEARING THE WHITE STRIPES OVER & OVER & OVER AGAIN.. I LISTEN TO JACK WHITE ALL THE TIME NOW, BUT ITS JUST NOT THE SAME. NOW IT JUST MAKES ME CRY.

IT STILL DOESN’T SEEM REAL. THIS IS SO MESSED UP. NOTHING WILL EVER BE THE SAME, I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME. IF WE DID NOTHING ELSE, WE MADE EACH OTHER LAUGH

& I MEAN LAUGH HARD. IF ANYONE EVEN KNEW THE STUPID STUFF WE WOULD LAUGHED SO HARD AT THEY WOULD OF THOUGHT WE HAD LOST OUR MINDSI think we did. BILL, YOU ARE MY BEST FRIEND, MY CONFIDANT, MY BROTHER & THE ONLY ONE PERSON I KNEW WOULD ALWAYS LOVE ME & BE THERE FOR ME. I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN.

I am so sorry to hear about Billy! . He was such a sweet and beautiful guy. He was always so much fun. Although it’s been a long time since I last saw Billy, I can still remember like it was yesterday, a bunch of us over at our friend Randys’ house, there would be Billy, with his long blond hair, blue eyes and big smile, singing his heart out to Bob Segar & Lynard Skynard. I am so sorry for your families’ loss. The video memorial was so touching, thank you for sharing it with us. You are in my thoughts and prayers………Chris Hardy Faris

I grew up with Bill in the neighborhood Sedgefield and I also went to school with Bill. I remember going down to the lake every Sunday and watching him, David Morris and Scottie Hill play football. I remember partying at Randy’s house and Bill’s great smile and personality. Those were some great times and I will cherish those memories.

I lost my brother Jerry Jones on 10/01/06 from a terrible accident as well and my heart still aches. I pray for Bill’s family as they find comfort.

I know the heartache that you all must feel. Robin I have yet to feel the loss of a sibling, but I know all to well the loss of a child.

Robin I did not know you all that well…only from the back yardBIG DAN’S LIL SIS, but I always thought you were cool…

I remember Billy walking the halls of Bayside High School, with his piercing blue eyes, and his long

absolutely beautiful, flowing blonde locks. He was a sight for any sore eye.

We saw each other at parties, he was at my graduation party, but I remember him best, not for singing Skynyrd, but for belting out,” SWEET CHILD OF MINE” in Bobby Driscoll’s kitchen in 1988.

Words can not express the loss that you all must fell…May your GOD be with you in this time of need, and know that he was loved and touched many lives.

I was a friend of Billy’s from high school. There was a group of us who hung out all summer the year we graduated. That was such a great time for us all. Billy was a nice guy and he was a lot of fun to be around. It is very sad to hear he has passed away. Although it has been many years since I have seen him he has always been remembered and will continue to always be remembered. I am so sorry for your loss and God bless you all.

I will forever hold the memories I have of Billy in my heart.I met Billy in the 8th grade and we remained friends through the years. Billy always had a smile on his face. He was a sweet and very kind hearted friend.When he sang, everyone just stopped and listen. He had a voice that would just open up your heart. I will miss you my friend. Go sing with the angels and watch over little Billy and your family. I love you buddy!

Its me again Bill missing you more and more everyday. Its July 4, 2008, summertime again. Your favorite time of year, which is making it harder and harder to get threw a day without crying. I would give anything to hear one of your hysterical sayings or jesters that would make us laugh so hard it hurt, and not even know what we were laughing at to begin with. The more time that passes the harder it is. Its just not right. I keep thinking my phone is gonna ring with you on the other end.

We never got the chance to say goodbye. They told me you would be home in 2 weeks. I never got to tell you how much I love you. I wouldn’t of left your bedside if I would of had any idea. It all happened so fast. It has finally started hitting me that this is real and I am sick inside.This is the worse and hardest thing I have ever experienced and I can’t handle it.

Its getting close to Sami and your birthdays. It wont be the same without you. So Happy Birthday Bill and Happy Birthday Sami. I Love You!

My dearest Billy, you are truly the most passionate man I’ve ever known. To know you was to know that people are to be accepted not expected and that love is truly unconditional. There are so many memories, packing picnic lunches and piling all the kids in the car to spend the day at the beach, buying Christmas for LB and all the kids then waking up acting like Mr. and Mrs. Claus, bass fishing, if there was a body of water we were putting a rod in it. Family gatherings, late night movies and playing chess. All the trips to the Outer Banks, arm wrestling and Rocking Ham. Oh and cooking, making homemade pizza’s, grilling together all while listening to Merle and Hank. To see you get your leg and hands dancing away while singing and feeling every note. I remember when you brought that dog Jack home. Wow that dog could tear up some stuff and then run away but he always managed to come back home looking for a little love and forgiveness. That was you Billy that free spirit. I want to thank you for sharing your passion with me, broading my horizons, sharing your family with mine and most of all I want to thank you for loving me and letting me love you. May you fly free and peaceful and know that you will be alive in my soul through eternity. Until I see you again, Piper

Noni, when I called you Saturday morning, looking for your special ability to help me put one of those “life things” into proper perspective I was horrified to find out where you were and what was happening in your life and yet, within a few minutes of our conversation you wanted to know if there was something I needed. Words fail me and that being said, I just want you to know that I know and I care. You are in my prayers and I pray that He will grant you the peace that passes all understanding. Love, marie

On behalf of myself and my family, I cannot find the words to express how saddened and shocked I have been through Billy’s passing. Billy, Al, and myself were like the “Three Musketeers of Trouble” when we were little youngsters finding ourselves doing the wrong things and creating all kinds of trouble. I am seriously at a lost. Billy was my friend, my cousin, and my brother! His life here on Earth may have been short, but he touched many people and is leaving behind many memories for us all to share and enjoy. Through these memories Billy will live on forever. The good Lord called him home way before any of us were prepaired, this I know. I guess the Lord was in need of a hard working, Southern Rockin’, Rebel, and so this is why He called on our friend. Everyone has questions, but no one will ever know why. When we are down, I can only remind us all to celebrate the many memories and times we share with him. I will forever hold onto the lasting memory of the last time he hugged me, he said, “I love you and good bye to me” at the conclusion of our Nanni’s birthday party, You will notice my absence at the memorial and this is personal problems. However, I will say a special prayer tonight in hopes that it brings peace over all your broken hearts! As for you, Robin and Jesse, I feel as much love for you as I shared will our brother! Please call on me any time and I will be there for you. The same goes for you, Bev. E-mail me and I’ll give you my number. Robbie Matuszak

Robin and Family, I was shocked and saddened to hear of Bill’s passing. I can’t imagine what you must be going through with losing your 2nd sibling. I am so sorry and pray that you will be comforted through this very sad time. Even though I had not seen Bill for quite some time, I still thought of him from time to time and thought of some of the fun times I shared with him. I remember driving back and forth from Georgia to see him just for the weekend. I always thought he was absolutely gorgeous and had a wonderful sense of humor oh, and what a dancer that boy was!. I will remember the good times I had with him and he will always have a special place in my heart. I wish you and your family peace through this hard time.

Love, Kim
