memory of correctional officer

          Billy my little brother and best friend once very happy worked 20 years for the department of corrections.
          Billy retired at 50. Billy was on top of his world at the beginning of his retirement. Started a business selling classic auto parts in Madera ca. Put all his savings into his dream. After a year of low sells and several loans attempting to make his dream work he gave up. Shortly after found himself in a very painfull divorce. Sold his big home moved himself into a small trailer. A year in the trailer moving from walmart to fairgrounds back and forth , Sad. lost and lonely as if that wasn't enough already he is then tagged with lung Cancer.

          The cancer quickly spread to his brain. Billy often found himself in I,C,U, after passing out in parking lots. while driving, and just walking in the park. My brother gave up i spent a lot of time with Billy in his last year. Nothing i could do would help his depression and fear of dying. The loneliness he made for himself became more then he could handle. 

           Billy is at the Boice funeral home 
I live pay check to pay check as do His 2 sons. 
            Please help us get My little brother
to a resting place we all can visit him at.  Something more then a card board box.

                                                           Thank You Gene Stebbins
