I was sorry to hear of Billy's passing, but happy now that he has his full abilities back again and is praising our Lord. And wondering what's taking you so long to be with him in heaven. I counted it a privilege to have cared for Billy for years, considered him a friend, and was honored that he and you entrusted his health care to me.

We can look forward to the day when there will be no more sickness and death. Revelation 21:4 says: "And he (God) 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". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
