Condolence From: Julie Bailey
Condolence: My Uncle Billy Ray. I loved you from the minute I met you. Our special talks brought out so much that you and I had in common. We seemed to have a true understanding of each other. Never judgement - only love. We shared a special and unique bond and friendship. I am so grateful that you came into my life - I learned a lot from you, and you always made me smile. I'm so grateful that you and my dad - brothers - finally met, and that you each found your brother- in each other- to love, get to know,to create good memories with. I will miss the most the music,the stories, and the humor, joy and fun that always flowed from you! I will miss that smile, and twinkle in your eye! I'll miss your silly jokes and stories, and Aunt Mary Ann's cute expressions when you told them! :) I love you. I'm so happy that you are with Jesus now though, and watching over all of your family. I finally met them Uncle Billy. We raced to say goodbye to you, but arrived too late. I was crushed, but then you sent me a gentle little sign that you knew we came, and I feel better now ♡.I love my Aunt Mary Ann. As I know you know, she is strong. She has your wonderful children to all help her, and each other, through this. That makes me happy. I know that makes you happy. Your kids and grandkids, and great grandkids are wonderful! I'm so glad to have gotten to meet my cousins! I saw you in each of them that I met ♡. Your legacy will live on through them, and that is wonderful! I will miss you always, I will talk to you often, and I will love you forever.
