By my side ull be all my life
By my side ure soul will never hide
By my side ure smile shines
By my side ull help me get by
By my side my angel lives

By my side in Gods grips
By my side in all the winds
By my side my tears still hide
By my side memories haunt my mind
By my side the one who took my place
By my side is your smiling face
By my side is your voice of jovialness
By my side is your newborn bliss
By my side through all of life’s uncertainties
By my side For all eternity
To Our Best Friend,
Past, present and beyond.
Even though you weren't here with us
too long your life is the most precious thing we could lose
While you were here the fun was
never-ending. Laugh a minute only the beginning.
Not only has it been a year since we've
last seen you. It's been a year more than we've wanted to
be right there beside you, be safe up there kid...I miss
you, we all do.
April 3rd is not a day that we have to
look down on, it's a day we have to remember that our best
friend finally got the wings he deserved.
It's amazing how much you could love
someone, it's kinda scary too. I never knew that I had all
this love inside of me...I'm just happy to let the Kayser
family know that I love them and most importantly, Billy,
with every piece of my heart. Will the Kayser family please
come and light my good luck candle, and accept this Star
that Dan and I had named after Billy.

There is a friend of mine
who is now gone
He said that he was wiser
He claimed he was stronger,
cuter, and faster
We all just called him
Billy I've know for many
Fourteen to be precise
Pre-K up to eleventh grade
Our time together was so
I remember back in S.M.S.
That red-light green-light
We raced to be the first in
If he lost he'd be in
Billy always had to win
In everything he did
If odds were stacked
against him, and he won
Then we all knew that he
He was into so so many
Baseball, golf, there were
But the one that I remember
Is stickball in the parking
He'd walk up in the righty
And take a practice swing
But after hitting it
To right field we'd be
Billy succeeded in making
Although he often made us
But the one thing that
really got us going
Was when he screamed out
I remember just a few years
The car that crashed into
his house and almost hit him
The day after Billy came up
And said "Tallia, we beat
the crap outta him!"
We partnered up every year
in the science fair
Because we did nothing, we
thought our grade would be a bomb
But the person who did the
most work of all
Was definitely Billy's Mom.
In eight grade, our final
St. Margaret's year
We went to see the Yankees
I was the "S", I think he
was the "Y"
But for him to put on his
shirt we all begged him "PLEASE!"
This one year Billy had a
And we were bright with
We put all that
destructiveness to use
And shoved Peckman through
the bathroom screen.
During the spring of one
year we went to Eamon's
And slid down that dead
But when someone said,
"Lets play Irish versus Italian"
Billy and I always
Of these memories I've
shared there should be more

your family and friends
Billy, you'll be in our
As we all know, Kayser was definitely popular with the
ladies. Who couldn't resist that smile, his sense of
humor and of course his "jacked" arms. Well Kayser let
me know he had all of those things everyday. He sat
next to me in chemistry class and definitely made that class
interesting. I would walk into class everyday just to
see him waiting in his seat for me. He would always
say, "there she is" as I walked in and he would pull out the
chair for me, sometimes (what a gentleman). He would
tell me I was gorgeous and that he loved me on a daily
basis, as well. We would fight all the time during
that class and annoy each other non stop. One day I
got so mad at him I made a line out of paper in between us
at the table and told him he couldn't cross that line.
Yet of course by the end of the period I just had to take it
down cause he was begging me and telling me how much he
missed me. One day I saw him writing something on a
piece of paper. About five minutes later he gave me
the paper. I looked down and it said married at age 27
and then four more ages where we would have our four kids
together. Kayser had actually planned our wedding!
The class got such a kick out of that, yet his humor never
seized to amaze the class.
One night I was talking to him on AOL. We were
talking about what we were going to do that night.
Nothing was really going on so I told him I would call him
if I did anything or heard of anything to do. I got
off line and one of my girl friends called me to go over
until we went out. I passed by Kayser's house on
my way to my friend's house and about 1 minute later my
phone rings, and who was it,? Kayser!! He was like,
"I thought you were going to call me if you went out".
I started to laugh and told him where I was going. We
did eventually end up meeting up that night for some food.
Kayser was always such a good friend to me and I don't
think I could ever forget him. Besides his amazing
smile, his love of life could brighten up any day. I
never got the chance to thank him for everything he did for
me. He made me feel like I was someone special and
always kept my head up. Not a day goes by where I
don't think of him and he will live in my heart forever.
In 10th grade Billy and I both played JV baseball.
During our final tournament Billy hurt his hamstring.
He sat out most of the game, but coach told him he was going
to hit in the latter part of the game. "Coach, I can't
run, my hamstring kills!" Billy said. "Well then
I guess you're just going to have to hit a home run Kayser,"
Mr. Santini said. Laughing, we all thought that the
idea was impossible, even though he had done it once before
during the season. I got on and was on second
base when the first pitch to Billy came right down the
middle. Next thing I see the ball goes shooting over
the right field fence. If my mouth wasn't wide open I
might have been able to laugh, because Billy was really
hurt. By the time I got to home plate, Billy was just
rounding first, holding the back of his leg. When he
finally made it to home plate everyone jumped on him, and
probably hurt him even more, but that was one of the most
amazing things I have ever seen happen during a baseball
game, and Bill did it.
In Memory of Billy
There is not a day goes by
Your are not in our prayers
For God has chosen your
soul to keep
Yet, those that are here
still cry and weep.
A mere child
Whose innocence was so
Now is gone,
But not forgotten
We miss you Billy
None of us will forget
How you have changed our
And because you are not
here, we suffer with regret.
Fly away dear Billy
And find peace in heaven
So when we look to skies
I know there is an angel
with wings #27
With Love, Aunt Barbara
Good people die young, that’s all I have to say
But why oh why did God take you away
You were a friend to everyone, especially in our school
I remember you trying to get all of us to buy boxes for
your super bowl pool
People say you are happy now, in a better place
I pray every night and hope that’s the case
I never showed how much I love you
But now I see how much I really do
I wish I just would’ve showed it, showed it more to you
In our thoughts,
In our, prayers,
You are always there.
In the bee that buzzes,
In the butterfly that flutters,
You are always there.
In every minute,
In every hour,
You are always there.
In times of joy,
In times of sorrow,
You are always there.
Out of our sight,
In our hearts,
By our side.
We get through each day knowing,
“You are always there.”
