A tribute to Bill.

It is with great sadness that I heard that Bill had fallen asleep.
I have had the pleasure of meeting Bill and his family at our mesothelioma support group in the South West. He was blessed with a lovely wife, Sandra, and 2 beautiful daughters, Joanne and Angela, who fought hard to help Bill fight his illness. Such a very courageous warrior who will be missed by many.

His daughter, Joanne, wrote a beautiful piece which I would like to share on here.

Your battle is now over, no more tears flowing down your cheek,
no more pain, no more suffering, now you are no longer weak.
I still do not understand why this had to happen to you,
but I am proud to say you are my dad, the greatest man I ever knew.
You were always there for me and never once made me cry,

until the day you closed your eyes and had to say goodbye.
Now you are my Angel, so spread your wings out wide,
please wrap them around me whenever you see me cry.
Our time together was memorable and God took you way too fast,
But the most precious thing to me was you being there for my first breath,
and me being there for your last.

Goodbye dad.xxxx

I am sending love and strength to Bill's family as they start their journey without him.
Condolences to Sandra, Joanne and Angela, there will be a bright star in the sky shining brightly and watching you every day x x
