William Akers (Billy) Cremation

Hello, I appreciate everyone's support and kind words through this trying time.  I know my dad was truly a loved man and had a place in many of our hearts. Unfortunately I cannot cover the expenses for the cremation that my father. I hate to ask for such but I am truly lost... Anything is appreciated, even if you cannot contribute the time you took to read this means more than I can express.

My dad was my hero, and always will be. He never gave up, even through his medical history. I remember him always being optimistic even at his worst. Never once did he let his condition put him down. He had some bad days but even on those days he would still smile and fight through the issue.
He taught me to always forgive, no matter what was done to you. Him and I have had our disagreements but at the end of the day we still would make up.
  My father would always help people however he could, even if he had nothing to give he would still try his hardest.

I could go on and on about how much my father meant to me and the kind soul he was. I appreciate everyone of you for checking up on me and him. Thank you for taking some time to read this and I will continue to update everyone when I get everything settled. 

Thank you.
Love, Bill and Joey.
