    We are so sorry for your loss Keith, Krissy, Carly, Chase, Cole and your other family members. The sweet sentiments you’ve written about him on FB show just how much he meant to you all. I’m happy I got to meet him and he saw Carly dance in Philly. We will be thinking about you. – the Maroneys

    Dear Billy
    I can’t begin to thank you for being the kind wonderful gentleman that you were. We all loved being greeted by you with that big warm smile 😃. You surely left your mark on the humanity of this earth. Well-done good friend. I am blessed ti have been called your friend. I will be missing our coffee and bagel meetups just to catch up on life. You have left your mark in my heart and my life forever. Rest easy dear Billy

    My sympathy and sorrow goes out to Bill’s family. My friendship with Bill has been while we both shared golf with the Toads Golf Club.

    While golfing together, Bill & I had many moments of fun, laughter and common enjoyment together. He was an outstanding person that will never be forgotten. My prayers are with him and the family. May God grant him eternal peace in Heaven.
