  6. candleTo my cousin and good friend Bill,
    I will be forever grateful for all the years that you have been part of my life and the many great times that we shared together. From playing together as young children, working out as teens, to spending time together as adults, I have so many wonderful memories. I have been truly blessed to have you in my life as a cousin and friend. Near or far, you have always been there for me and will be missed beyond words.
    May God bring healing and peace to your family and friends in this most difficult time. Although I’m saddened that you are no longer with us, I know that you were welcomed to heaven by Jesus with your Dad at his side with open arms.

    Rest in peace Bill, I love you and will miss you for the rest of my days.
    Cousin Mike

  7. candleTo Billy’s Family,
    Billy and I were not close friends but acquaintances as we came through the same industry. My father worked with Billy when he was very young at Telephonics. My brothers name is also Mike and we are a loving Italian family just like you are. I could not imagine how upset you all must all be. I am praying for you to be strong and to know that Billy loved all of you very much. I know you know that but I know that too and so does everyone who knew Bill so go with that if you don’t feel there is anything good to think about. . If you need anything i am here to help so please call.

  8. candleMy friend, over the years you taught me so much about life, the smiles, running a muck, laughing for hours, big heart and giving nature will always be cherished. God Bless you!

    “For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down, we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands.”
    2 Corinthians 5:1

  9. Bill and I have an unbreakable bond, an ethic, a wavelength that is eternal. I’m supremely fortunate to have him as a friend, a brother. A unique individual for sure, I have so much respect and admiration for the man. I want to send my heartfelt sympathies to his family, love you all so much. He is now reunited with his dad, I’m happy for that, I know he missed his father terribly-rejoice! He would want us all to be strong and carry on and not to fret. He will always be with us all, in our hearts and minds. I love you my brother, thank you. And when we meet again, it will be glorious.

  10. candleTo Bill’s family and friends,
    Most anyone who worked with Bill soon found he was more than a coworker, supplier or boss. He cared deeply for everyone he came in contact with, becoming your advocate, friend and supporter almost instantly. Always looking within before judging others. He is a loved and cherished friend and I will miss him. Tony D

  11. candleAll of my funniest memories from childhood are of me and you and our brothers. Too soon cousin. Prayers for your children and mom.

  12. Just after picking up his pizza pie Bill notices my wife and I seated at a table. Of course he’s too much of a gentlemen to just give a wave and head out the door so, he turns and heads for our table. We talk about everything from electronics to tropical fish. About fifteen minutes in to our conversation I say “Bill, that pizza’s going to get cold and since when do you eat pizza?” He says “shoot, my girlfriend is outside waiting, she’s gone kill me” and “I can eat this whole pie myself, you got to have fun once and a while – but not too often”.
    He was never too busy to say Hi or make you feel special. Love you Bill – Tony D

  25. In the attics of my life
    Full of cloudy dreams unreal
    Full of tastes no tongue can know and lights no eye can see
    When there were no strings to play
    You played to me
    I have lived my life, seeking all that’s still unsung
    Bent my ear to hear the tune
    And closed my eyes to see
    When there was no ear to hear
    You sang to me
    In the book of lives own dream
    Where all the print is blood
    And all the pages are my days
    And all my lies grow old
    When I had no wings to fly
    You flew to me
    You flew to me
    In the secret space of dreams
    Where I dreaming, lay amazed
    When the secrets all are told
    And the petals all unfold
    When there was no dream of mine
    You dreamed of me

    Together always, here and beyond.
