|Let the memory of William (Billy) Conway be with us forever|
"Happy 25th Birthday in Heaven Billy! I miss your sweet face. I still have my Stella cup you gave me, I shall have a beer in it & toast to you my friend!"
"Forever Missed, how perfect two words are for you Billy. I still worry about your parents. We got along, communicated well you and I, it was fun watching you as you grew up. I ran across this saying, so I am borrowing some of the words from this post from 1918 - wow!
Henry Scott Holland:
"Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well."
"Today I light a candle in honor of how brightly you shined during your short time in this world. Billy today marks 25 even though you will be 22 forever. I miss your smile, warmth,and most of all your friendship! Happy Birthday BROTHER I MISS AND LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!!"
"25 years old today.....You will always be that 22 year old who was so proud to have made the Baker's Dozen on the Northland 300. What a fun and caring young man! You will never, ever be forgotten. The World is missing you, Billy but I know you are watching us from above with the same love you always had. Rest in peace and Happy Birthday Your friends from Special Olympics and the Northland 300"
"Billy I miss having you here with us. You were so incredibly loving and sweet. I'm so grateful for the time we spent together, and love you very much. Happy 25th birthday Sweetheart."
"My condolences go out to the family and friends of William. From reading about him I know he is missed and loved by many. No matter what, it can truly be said that death is an enemy and soon it will be brought to nothing (1Cor. 15:26). I have found much comfort in the Bibles promise of a resurrection hope of our loved ones at John 5:28, 29 and hope you will too. Death was never a part of Gods original purpose, in fact he yearns to soon bring an end to it and the suffering it causes your family and friends. Revelation 21:4 states: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I did not know William, but I read his obituary and I hope these scriptures will help to bring some comfort knowing that others care. If you would like to learn more about the Bibles promises and the hope it brings, please feel free to contact me."
"I remember going in the Alfa car with Billy and his dad and going to the beach that day and he was so happy when we were in the water waving at people. Everyone loved him he was so sweet to everyone growing up. I miss him! Also his graduation party was the best we had so much fun playing volleyball and he was a social butterfly all night! <3"
"Brig, you are in my thoughts and prayers today. I wish I could take the pain away.
Enjoy the happy memories. He was truly a blessing to many.
Love you and miss you."
"What a beautiful way to remember Billy! While hearts break today, we will always smile with all the love ❤ he brought to the world."
"Bill, I miss you so much. I know you are safe and enjoying the enternal life where there's no stress or worries. Not that you carried too much stress while you were down here on earth. That is something I will always admire about you sweet boy. I will never forget our time together on your last Christmas with us. We were in Roseville mall and I was stressed about buying the house and with the new job, and your advice to me was to just "chill" it will all work itself out. I try to remember your advice anytime I get too worked up, because you're right. We need to follow in your ways of just loving in the moment. Life is short. I try to love with all my heart, enjoy life's blessings and incredible moments because they are precious. You were wiser than your years. Please watch over me and continue to remind me of this lesson and so many others that you have taught me. And know I am always thinking of you, and I love you so much. Love you baby brother, Meg"
"This is a lovely idea Brigid. Ty told me that Billy was a guy who made everyone happy & whatever he did a lot of fun. I am so sorry for the heartache & loss you've experienced. I hope you're remembering the joys and love Billy brought in his precious life. Even with the sorrow & heart ache, the love out weighs the pain. Be gentle with yourself."
"Not a day passes without thoughts of you Billy! Pushing 2 very long years without your friendship to help confront the shit life throws this way! You are a great friend and I look forward to the day we can chum around again! Till then take care of everyone up there and most of all LET YOUR LOVE SHINE DOWN ON US BROTHER!!!!! :)"
"Bill, you were such a sweet person. Never a mean word for anyone, and you tried to make a positive impact In your community. The world needs more people like you. Love Hannah"
"Thinking of you today Brigid."
"Forever Loved, Forever Missed, Forever 22, I love you Billy!!!"
