The 4th Annual Fishing Trip
The 4th Annual Memorial Fishing Trip in Billy’s Honor♥

Please feel free to Click the link on the Home page for the Flipagram that was created for the Fourth Annual Fishing Trip ♥commentMom
This year is the 4th Fishing Trip, yet for many of us it still doesn’t seem real. We’ve learned (with much work) to live with the pain of missing Billy’s physical presence everyday, and somehow our brains have adjusted to a new way of seeing life. So many of those who are deeply affected by Billy’s passing have gone down paths of helping others, living a non-judgmental life, appreciating the beautify of life and understanding that it’s not having the “most” in life that brings happiness, it’s “needing” the least….that love is truly unconditional and longtime friends and those put in our path while on this journey “are” our family of brothers and sisters. We have learned that we truly are guided by a greater force if we let down our guards and “let it go, and let it flow.” That faith in whatever empowers you can help you achieve things we never thought possible. I will always question “why Billy?” at those moments when I feel the weakest, and then I look around and see so much good that he has accomplished (like the grain of wheat that only multiplies once it has fallen), and I take that deep breath that I have learned fills me with hope. On the back of the t-shirts this year there is an Eagle carrying the Eternity Anchor. Billy and I often spoke in metaphors about life…..finding success and flying high like an Eagle, “Fly like an Eagle (Seal) on his 16th Birthday Montage. Billy gave me a beautiful framed Bible Verse “Isaiah 40:31…..they will soar on wings like eagles.” The week after Billy passed we were all in the kitchen and Larry said “Deb, look out the window….on the tree!” ….there was the biggest Hawk? Eagle?, whatever it was looking right at me ♥ I became filled with an emotion I have come to learn is “hope.” Free Bird is a song that I have found on many of Billy’s play lists, and I truly believe that I was guided to British Airways (Toni was the conduit, Billy was the reason), to take these trips of wonder and awe that have been a great source of strength, life learning and well being for us. The Eagle’s Historical and Traditional meaning, of course, is the reigning symbol of the US representing freedom. The Native American Interpretation of the Eagle is Great Spirit. The Eagle power animal takes you on a journey of flight which opens you to new vistas of perception and new dimensions of awareness, this is an invitation “to look at things with new eyes.”

Billy’s 24th Birthday♥ Billy turning 24 on the 24th….very powerful day. Our hearts remain broken, but the broken part is starting to fill with gratitude. Being grateful on this day 24 years ago when he was given to us, our family became complete, our hearts smiled with a love beyond measure and the laughter rose to new levels. The honor and pride of having a son that filled our lives with experiences and emotions that we never imagined has been the source of our strength. Our great love keeps us connected in a bond that has the power to withstand the finality of what was to be.
Today we celebrate your life and all the special memories of so many wonderful times. From the time that you took your first steps you hit the ground running and never stopped! Enjoying every day and every experience, making everlasting memories with friends and family who love you wholeheartedly. It’s been said “It’s not the years in your life that count, but the life in your years”- Abe Lincoln – and while we struggle to accept this rationale, we know of its truth. We give honor to your courage fighting a disease that has become an epidemic yet still remains grossly misunderstood. We are forever grateful for having you in our lives. I love you my treasure, my heart……my Billy ♥

The 2nd Annual Fishing Trip in Billy’s Honor ♥ The back of the shirts read “Keep Calm and Chive On” Although this is now a huge social movement on social media, (can be strange at times – although lots of it is about paying it forward), back in the day before anyone knew about this, Billy called his first car – Nice looking Chrysler 300, “The Chive.” Not surprising at all as Billy would give names to everything and everyone, including himself! Recently a few of the girls relayed stories of seeing these Bumper Stickers at times when they had experienced a feeling of Billy’s presence and it had me thinking……Chive On has come to mean all that Billy was. Being a loving son and brother, a good friend to his buddies, sharing all that he had with those he was closest to – including his love of the water, boating, jet skiing, fishing, etc… giving ALL of us experiences we never dreamed we would have (like Larry and I on the top of double diamond mountains skiing, watching him play football, playing drums in the school band, etc….) always, greeting each day with excitement – what to do next, reaching and trying new things and succeeding (like becoming an EMT on his way to Medical School, while suffering with a disease we knew little about) loving all of his girlfriends and above all being a friend to them, giving all of himself to a very special one And now, even after his passing he continues to give us experiences….Rappelling off buildings to raise awareness of Addiction Disease, running a GRASP monthly support group at St. Rose, having this wonderful Annual Fishing Trip (which was actually his friends idea) that will hopefully keep this wonderful group always connected through him, We are also creating an Athletic Scholarship in Billy’s name at the Massapequa High School. So although we walk a fine line each day between our grief and life…our love for Billy will help us to “Keep Calm and Chive On.

“The student becomes the teacher”…….Billy gave this to me a few years ago, and the first sentence speaks the loudest. He has taught me, and continues to teach me about the true meaning of life. I have been blessed with three exceptional children, and though our lives have been far from ordinary I have come to understand the reason why Happy Mothers Day to all who have the honor of being called “Mom.”

On January 18th my beautiful great niece Jaymes was Bat Mitzvah’d. Going to “any” family event is difficult without Billy’s physical presence, but this one was extra tough. A memorable night with all of our loved ones, black tie and all. I pictured how Billy would look – so handsome, of course, and I kept that image in my head as I got dressed with my final accessory; an Anchor Locket that Larry gave me for Christmas. The night was magical as Steve and Eliza outdid themselves with a celebration that will be talked about for many years to come. Larry was honored to participate in the service, and I just kept breathing it all in. Right before our eyes Jaymes, no longer a little girl, now a young lady! Stepping into the reception, we were completely surrounded by the most elegant decorations, flowers, living statues (yes living),photo booths, dancers, I could go on. When the time came for Jaymes to light her 13 candles I (and 300 others) watched and listened to her every word. When I heard her say our families’ names and included “Billy in heaven” ♥ it was all I could do to walk up, but at the same time I felt like the tallest person in the room. They played “Sunshine of your Love” with Eric Clapton at the vocals (I’ll save that for another story). A “defining” moment in our family for sure – Billy will ALWAYS be with us at every family event ♥ ALWAYS Debbie

Great memories of Grandpa dressing as Santa

Missin you bad right now… couple weeks before you passed i remember driving home from Sal’s with a couple bacon egg and cheeses and we were listening to this song and had absolutely no shame in seeing who could hit the high notes better (which is still debatable)… but whenever i hear it now i think about you, ironically, as the song is called “thinking about you” …. but damn I wish i could go back to those good times…Fuckin rainy days… ‘My. eyes. don’t. shed. tears. but boy they pour when I’m thinkin’ bout you’…

Thanksgiving Love

Sometimes i bring myself way too down not understanding why things are the way they are.. but then i think back and literally laugh out loud at some of the best memories I am lucky to have. growing up with a sister I always wanted to have and we would tell lil cuz Harlie Rae Battey scary stories and huddle in my room during thunder storms, car jams and crazy adventures with Billy Garceau and the girls, walking home from elementary school with the quealys causing chaos..4 pairs of crazy twins in a religion (ya that DID NOT last) .. ryan always had that big smile when we would reunite and have the biggest hugs! these memories…. forever and ever will be with me send them on their way… RIP kaitlyn, billy, ryan

Memorial Mass in Billy’s Honor 11/9/13

A special gathering and Mass was held today in Billy’s honor. Stephanie and Anthony sang from their hearts, songs that were specially chosen for this day, including: Casting Crowns “Who am I” – Laura Story “Blessings” and Sean McDonald “I will Rise” Fr. Ken’s words of comfort…telling of how a single grain of wheat can grow and remain unchanged, but when the wheat falls it multiplies over and over. In so many ways, this has become true of Billy’s passing. I wrote a new journal entry that tells of our lessons this past year ♥Unapprove | Reply | Quick Edit | Edit | Spam | Trash |   | Report to SFSPostsView Page212212 comments2013/11/09 at 7:58 pmSelect commentJimmy (FB)

A year ago today, I lost not only a great friend, but an important piece of my childhood and who I am today. Luckily, I was able to get closer than I ever was with him the summer before he passed as we were both back in the place we grew up. I recommend you make an attempt to remain close with those few friends that you have had since you were little, because you may not realize it, but they helped patch together who you are. Love you kid. — with Billy Garceau and Debbie Garceau.Unapprove | Reply | Quick Edit | Edit | Spam | Trash |   | Report to SFSPostsView Page212212 comments2013/11/09 at 7:50 pmSelect comment

Happy birthday in heaven to a dear friend of mine Billy. You were my best friend for years and the one person who really understood me. You always knew how to make me laugh, even when I wanted to kill you. From our solo dance parties to our “romantic” (lol) boat rides, we always had the best of times together. I feel your presence all the time, especially by the water, and thats what gets me thru these tough times. But Ill never forget all the beautiful memories we made together.

Castle Tattoo ♥
Billy suggested a Castle…..and John did just that — with Chrissy Garceau and Billy Garceau at LONE WOLF TATTOO.

Jimmy and the crew came up with this wonderful way to come together in Billy’s name ♥ Jimmy took the helm – had the t-shirts designed and made his popular (one of Billy’s favorites)”Buffalo Chicken Dip!” I’ve always told my kids that to have good friends you first had to be a good friend…..I’m so glad that Billy was that friend for everyone. We have ALL become friends forever thanks to Billy. Larry and I will ALWAYS be there for all of you! A few photos from the “First (of many) Annual Fishing Trip!”

We love you Amanda!

Best buddies….Billy, Adam and Jimmy. Always together in their younger years a bond that can never be broken. This pose looks like they left room for Billy in the middle and that’s just where he is. Great seeing Art too!

Steve and Chase ♥ It meant so much to have them there with us

Chrissy and Johnny!

Sam ♥

Tina making friends 🙂

Got Fish?

Best of friends and family

Sharing a day out at Sea with our amazing friends and family, and Billy right beside us

There aren’t enough words to express…The love and support we have received from our ♥ Family and friends has been our source of strength

In reply to At The Lourve In Paris.
i, never in a million years thought we would be able to do “any” trip much less go to Europe. But the power of love can give you strength you never dreamed you had. The entire trip we were filled with the love and bond that we share with our Billy as our unity gets only stronger with each passing day. Seeing an Anchor at the Lourve was only a confirmation of what we already feel!! So many more Anchors surrounded us throughout the trip <3

The meaning of the Anchor Cross – Thanks Rob D ♥

Billy Billy Billy, I miss you so. May the Lord hold you in his arms and lead you into his place in heaven that he made for you. And I pray to God for your mother, father, sister and brother that he will give them strength and peace. God bless you all. Love Grandpa John.

Mom, Dad, Brian, Chrissy and Aunt Dee
My first Mothers Day without Billy’s physical presence, I struggle with my emotions of wanting so much to be wrapped in one of his “bear hugs” and receiving one of his cards with his classic “happy face w/ the dracula teeth”… and the reality of knowing he was suffering with a brain disease that was quietly, slithering its way to debilitating the very essence of his beautiful, loving inner-self. My deep love for Billy takes me to a place where I am able to surrender “my” needs and feel his love surround me like a warm blanket. I continue to pray that he remains close by my side during this difficult journey. Billy gave me this plaque a few years back and it’s the first sentence that speaks the loudest to me ♥

Can’t believe it’s been six months already since you passed. This summer is just not going to feel right without you around. I know your in a better place now though, and I could still feel your presence around me everyday, especially near the water. You were a true friend and I’ll never forget that.

How can the sun rise and set every day, you are gone, our world has turned dark.
How can the world continue to turn, you are gone, our world has stopped turning.
How can the grass grow, buds sprout, flowers bloom, you are gone, we have much gloom.
How can people laugh and play, be happy and gay, you are gone, we are sad and no longer find joy and happiness in our day.
How can holidays still be celebrated, you are gone, the meanings have since dissipated.
Each day in disbelief, sorrow, sadness, confused as to why.
Realization …… You are not gone but soulfully and spiritually still with us, in which gives hope.

Hope …… To find joy in sunrises, sunsets, holidays and every day.
Hope …… To feel the joy in the green grass afoot and the beauty of the flowers in bloom.
Hope …… To laugh again, play and be happy and gay.
Hope …… To find the meaning of holidays to hold dear to our hearts once again.
Hope …… To believe, find happiness, peace and confirmation.
Confirmation…….. Dear Billy, safe and sound, watching over, until we are together again ….. we have hope.
With much Love Dear Billy, Lucky are those who were blessed with Billy’s love, presence, his humor and that funny little giggle that he has.

This isn’t easy for me and as sad as I am about the reason why we are all here today, I can’t not think about Billy without a big smile on my face. I grew up in Massapequa with all of our friends that are here today and I feel so blessed to have had such a great childhood with the greatest people. One of my favorite memories of Billy was long before designated drivers was a thought in our heads. Billy was my designated “Pegger.” We rode around on our bikes everywhere and I always rode on back of Billy’s green bike. He would sweat like no other dragging me around but that was just a testament to what a good friend he was. I remember spending many days in Billy’s backyard jumping on the trampoline. The boys would launch us 25 feet in the air and it was a miracle we never broke any bones. He was famous for his chest knockers. I’m sure my friends in the room can remember those. I can’t even describe it, they were torture but we couldn’t help but laugh. It’s been bittersweet looking at all of the pictures in the room. But there is one missing that a certain friend wouldn’t let us put up. Back in the day me and the girls spent an afternoon putting makeup on Billy and Jimmy. They were two of the prettiest boys I’ve ever seen! A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to spend some time with Billy, going out with everyone again. And now I’m really happy I did. Billy I’m really going to miss you. I’ll always love you, never forget you and I’ll keep you in my heart until we meet again.Unapprove | Reply | Quick Edit | Edit | Spam | Trash |   | Report to SFSPostsView Page212212 comments2013/05/02 at 11:41 amSelect commentnancy evangelista

I am happy to see such wonderful pictures of Billy, his friends and his family.

Billy was a great guy. Ill never forget the summer we graduated. he would pick me up every morning and we would wait for the rest of the girls to wake up and then we would decide what adventure we would go on for that day. he would drive us an hour away to just find the most beautiful scenic area to hang out at. Billy loved hanging out with just the girls! i must say, the guys got jealous that summer because we stole him from them. and im happy we did, because we now have all these great memories. These are the memories ill always remeber him by. he made a lasting impression on my life, and i will never forget it him.Unapprove | Reply | Quick Edit | Edit | Spam | Trash |   | Report to SFSPostsView Page212212 comments2013/04/12 at 10:52 amSelect commentBari and Johnny Cavallo

I remember so many wonderful memories that make me smile, Who could forget our trip to Canandaigua, Niagara falls and Howe caverns, Key West and the plane ride to get there, the plane was so small!! We all were so happy and excited, oh and Disney was so fun even though we were “stranded” due to a snow storm in NY. We had a lot of chicken wings and pizza that week. Hershey Park the kids had so much fun, Billy loved the butterfly exhibit a lot!

Grief overwhelms us with so many emotions, but once you are able to put aside your doubts and embrace the love and joy you have shared, can you then feel the full connection to those we love. You, your daughter and many of your family members and friends have been blessed with this ability. Billy is with you now and forever!!

Even though Billy was a stocky, handsome, 22 year old when he passed, I will always see him as the 2 year old rambunctious, happy little boy playing on his bedroom floor when I met him for the first time. I remember thinking, he is soooo cute. I bent down and said, “Hiiiii Billy”. He looked up, smiled that famous smile, and bopped me right in the nose. I was one week post nose job, so I remember it well.
And although I saw him grow up over the next 20 years, I never knew him better than I do today after having had the opportunity to meet his friends and hear the great stories of the Billy they knew. I feel like now I really know Billy, for his complete self – his struggles and strengths, sorrows and pride, and most importantly, the affects he had on everyone is his life. I am comforted and grateful for the opportunity to truly know him.
I hope you all continue your relationship with Billy – talk to him, think of him, tell him a joke out loud, because he is with us and he does hear you. Yesterday, my son, Chase, said that he asked Billy to help him get the high score on his video game “and he did.” So please remember that Billy is very much around. And, watch out, because he just may still play a prank on you once in a while.Unapprove | Reply | Quick Edit | Edit | Spam | Trash |   | Report to SFSPostsView Page212212 comments2013/04/02 at 2:18 pmSelect commentDeb Tumillo (Cousin Deb)

Seeing the little children in church and your beautiful second cousins today reminded me of the years that Dad would try to explain to me that it “wasn’t Christmas” as I filled the Easter baskets to the top! We would attend the Easter Vigil because you thought it was cool that part of the Mass was held in candlelight…You were the force today that brought our whole family together for Mass and brunch. Our hearts are so very heavy as we miss you beyond our comprehension.

It’s so funny you should post this! I saw you posted it on FB too – days before u did, this song was going through my head and then coincidently I was listening to Billy’s CDs in the car and it came on……he is definitely shining on that Crazy Diamond!!Unapprove | Reply | Quick Edit | Edit | Spam | Trash |   | Report to SFSPostsView Page212212 comments2013/03/30 at 12:00 amSelect commentDonna

This is absolutely beautiful. I feel so connected to Billy as his godmother and I see signs of him everywhere. I wish we had more time together. I love that I can see him here too and share the love with our family.

What an amazing way to remember Billy. His laughter and his charm comes through all of it. You have done an incredible job Debbie in capturing his essence.

Billy I have never met you, but I have become friends with your sister Christina. You are a handsome young man and I am so sorry you had to leave us so soon. Please look for my son Scott as he left way too soon as well. Keep an eye on your sister and heal her heart. Love to Christina and Billy forever. Ellie (Eleanor Herrmann)
