Is a loved one passing away mean that's the end? Oh no!! God's plan is to give us parents to love and He gave us children to hold...all just for a while! Miraculously His ultimate plan is for all of us to be together again one day...never to leave each other again. Oh, what a glorious day that will be! Hold strong Billy and family ..............God will always prevail ..... !

Where I have gone I am not so small. My soul is as wide as the world is tall. I have gone to answer the call, the call Of the One who takes care of us all. Wherever you look, you will find me there- In the heart of a rose, In the heart of a prayer. On butterflies' wings, on wings of my own, To you, I'm gone, But I'm never alone- I am home
