A huge loss

Dear Editor:

The phrase “words cannot describe” seems trite and true. For comfort, we try.

From all corners of the earth, through spirit and memories, we send hugs and love to Billy’s family, friends and loved ones, to each other, remembering them, remembering him in his enormous, infectious joy, energy, laugh, smile, fun, friendship, runs, rides, food, wine, photographs and life.

Billy Rieger was the poster boy for living to love every minute of life. We honor him by adding a little bit of Billy to our lives.

With deepest sympathies and warmth to all who ever met, barely knew or loved him dearly.

Bonnie D. Behrend
