    Thinking of you during this difficult time. Stay strong and remember you have so many friends that are just a phone call away if you need anything. May God give you the strength to get through these next few days and then the days after when you need comfort.

    The many times we have shared together, laughed, cried, been mad, has just been running through my mind. I love you Sandy and I am here if you need anything. I know that we do not see each other now, our lives have changed, but in my heart you will always be one of my “best” friends. Us “three” girls. Sandy, Sandy, Cathy, will always be the best three ” POWERPUFF GIRLS ” in the world. My prayers are with you. I know your heart is broken and you really can’t make sense of any of this, and I am at loss for words to tell you how you can make sense of any of this. Love Cathy

    You were amazing! I cannot even express the sympathy that I have for Billy’s mother, girlfriend and children. He was a wonderful man and brought so much joy to my life. I have such great memories of our times together and appreciate everything that Billy did for me and all the times that he was there for me when I needed a shoulder to cry on. He touched me and my children’s lives in so many ways and we will think of him everyday. Thank you Sandy Wessel for bringing such an awesome person into this world. I am so lucky to have had a chance to have such an amazing, funny, helpful, loving, make ANY day better kind of friend. My heart is broken. As I told you every time I talked to you Billy, I love you! Mwah! but this time with so much sadness in my heart. Rest in heaven peacefully, I will speak to you everyday.
