In loving memory of William 'Billy' Walsh who sadly passed away on 18th July 2019.

William Edward Walsh was the little brother I didn’t have. I had 2 big brothers but they weren’t into being naughty like we were. You was known as Little Billy because the “grown ups” already had Williams, Bills and Billy’s, so you were the one and only Little Billy.

The 18 months between us had no bearing on our childhood. We spent so much time together right through our childhood and through to our early 20’s. Then we began our grown up lives and our lives began to go in different directions.

I, like many others never, ever envisaged the path your life took. Despite everything that life threw at you, you continued to be your own person and I would not begin to imagine what you had to deal with.

It is not for me to judge your life’s path but your resilience as a kid surely helped you in your later years and for that you have my admiration and respect.

We all must end our days when the clock of life stops ticking but your beating heart will never ever stop beating until we are together again.

Tony xx

I am finding it difficult to say what I feel mate. To feel guilty about your life would be hypocritical of me. I could and should have done more, which I think will be how a lot of people feel. We all choose our life’s path as best we can and some people get all the breaks and others just don’t. The bond between us when we were kids was so strong and later you became someone I just didn’t know and didn’t want to know. I wanted to shut that person out of my life and pretend I didn’t know them. I hope that you are at peace now because you truly deserve to be. Your passing has made me really think about my life and I sincerely hope that I can be a better person.

I will love you and remember you until we are together again.

God bless you my Son

Tony xx

We had our ups and downs over the years Bill but you were my flesh and blood and no one can ever take that away. I did'nt agree on how you lived your life but only you knew why. I'm sorry i let you down but i just couldn't cope seeing you like that it was heartbreaking.

I am sitting at home thinking about your final journey tomorrow. Your flowers are ready and sitting in my shop waiting for the morning. Funerals and death are a huge part of my life but I find the longer I do this the more I struggle to understand it. Today I looked after a 12 year old boy who lost his life and a 92 year old. Is it right or wrong to say why did the boy die and not live to 92. What did the 92 see in their life that the 12 year old will never see. The boy will always be young but that is no help to the grief for the parents.

You will never grow old in years Billy but our times and adventures as kids will last an eternity. You were loved by so many people who just did not understand you and for that I for one am truly sorry.

I hope your next adventure will be full of fun and happiness.

Sleep Easy

Tony xx

Bill I have fond memories of you from back in the day when we was court in ! You was my first boyfriend ❤️ We had some laughs and working in Tescos together I will never forget ! You were kind , caring , funny ! You always made me laugh ! Remember sitting up in your bedroom and you playing the jam albums to me on your turntable listing to Paul Wellers amazing voice ! So thanks to you I turned into a Paul Weller fan and loved him as much as you did ❤️ So as we grew apart and took different paths in our lives we lost touch ! Not knowing the journey you went on but hoping it was happy for you as you traveled through it ! Now hearing your journey has now come to an end I feel so sad 😞 the photo I see posted on here of you is just how I will always remember you always smiling ! Just wished I got to see you sometime as we grew just to say hi ! And now your on another journey to which I wish you a safe one ! God bless you bill you will always be in my thoughts ❤️ Ju xx

Uncle bill, here I am writing this , what can I say except I’m gutted and heartbroken. You was truly a great uncle to me! I have many ... so many memories of you as a child, teenager and adult that I will cherish- but unfortunately I never had the chance to have the last couple of years with you. I hope and pray that you are in a better place now . When I think of you I think of the times when you was a great dad & great husband , when you would come up mine for takeaways , the times when I would laugh because you would walk absolutely everywhere with Sam and kids I couldn’t understand why you loved walking haha ( I hate it ). You never left their side!! But something happened and something went wrong but to me you was still my uncle, still the same nutter, always had something to say to make someone laugh!!
I Refuse to say goodbye , but sleep tight uncle bill till will meet again .
Love always
Netty xXx

I knew Billy when we were kids. My Family used a Social Club called the Peckham Liberal Club. Us as kids would be messing about and having fun. Truth be told as a scatty 12 year old I had a crush on Billy. He was always kind to me and no I never got a kiss!
Sleep tight Billy 💙💙
