What was planned as a neighborhood New Year's Eve party turned to a fine Irish wake when our friend was called to the next big adventure. It was just the sort of send-off he deserved. He was a great neighbor and friend, a gentleman and a scholar who spent 37 years in public service. We will miss him.
He left the earth as he had expressed a wish to do, helping others. He died of a massive heart attack while loading a truck with supplies to be sent to the flood victims in Texas. No hospitals or nursing homes for him, he wanted the express.
Here's to you Billy Mac! Say "Hay" to Bubba for us.

May you have warm words on a cold evening, A full moon on a dark night, And the road downhill all the way to your door.

I'm sorry for your loss, and to his family ,and the world ,that a great man has departed;we should hope a great one is born to fill those shoes.

I too am sorry for your loss. He sounds like a wonderful man! I suppose if one is to pass on, quickly is the best way to go. Good journey to you Billy Mac!

Thanks to all of you. It is painful for those of us left behind after such a sudden death but there is comfort in the fact that he went as he wished.
It has been a rough patch for our kids especially. They lost their grandmother just as suddenly before Thanksgiving and now "Uncle Bill" has departed too. Even though he wasn't a blood relative he was a constant in their lives from the time they were very small. He was the kind of guy who didn't "preach" at kids, he just lived his life as an example of kindness and generosity. He and his wife had only one child of their own but they "adopted" scores through the years. They taught them to be kind, to appreciate and protect the glories of nature and to love...by personifying those attributes.
