Condolence from Gerald & Vina Moses on March 29th, 2013 9:26 am

Billy was a person who when he gave you a hug, you knew you had a hug….He was a special person and though quiet, had a good sense of humour. Gerald and I learned a lot from Billy about RV’ing and about life. We are sad that he has passed away…sad for Sylvia, for Al and for his family & friends…. Billy will remain a part of those fond memories we have of camping, of quiet talks and huge hugs. We will miss seeing him at the grocery store every week and hearing his distinctive voice as he greeted us….RIP Billy.
Gerald & Vina
