Billy Meister's Memorial Fund
Our beloved Billy Meister has been taken to heaven, and only God knows why. His father, Bill (Pooker) Meister, his mother, Brigid Conway and I (his only sister) will love and miss him forever. He was one of the sweetest souls and only had good thoughts about people. He was very talented and full of life at 22. He will forever be 22.
I never imagined the day I would be working on a memorial fund to help pay for his funeral, but today I am and words are not coming to me easily. There has been a flood of emails, calls, texts, and facebook messages from those who loved Billy and his family asking us what they can do to help. If you can donate $5, $20 or whatever you can... this will help with the financial stress that comes with burying your loved one. The bills are already piling high, but we are going to give him one hell of a celebration on his way out - no matter the cost, because he deserved it. Any remaining funds will go to the Special Olympics and the Northland 300 Snowmobile Race that he was so proud to participate in.
Gratitude and love to those who are praying for us, thinking of us and contributing. God bless you all.
We are having a bash to honor Billy. Save the date - April 14th at the Dugout Bar in Mahtomedi. Uncle Chunk will be there to perform and more. Stay tuned for more details.

We would also like everyone who is attending the mass on Saturday to know we are having a luncheon at the Lake Elmo Event Center to celebrate Billy's life. Please click on this link for directions: http://www.lakeelmoinn.com/event-center.
At a later date we are also going to have a "benefit" though we are not fond of that word - we prefer to call it a kick-ass celebration for Billy. Details will be coming soon.
My heart is beyond broken due to the loss of my borther, but the love and support you are giving to my family melts what is left of it. Thank you.
I clearly have never done this before - forgive me - I forgot to mention when the services are. Please click on the link above for details. This generousity is amazing and leaves me speechless. Thank you so much.
