Our deepest condolences go out to you all at this sorrowful time. Bill will hold a special place in my heart. He was such a gentle, sweet, kind man and I will really miss his humour and sweet personality. As hard as it is, we sometimes have to be unselfish and let those we love go to a place where pain doesn't exist and peace is attainable. Rest in peace, dear Man.

Sincere condolences to Heather and the family of Bill Bailey.
I very much enjoyed knowing Bill and Heather through the
antique car club. Bill was such a nice person and I sure miss
the contact I had with them. I am sure Bill is going to enjoy
spending his time riding around in his old cars with the rest of
his car club friends. Rest in peace Bill.
