I have always wondered why they have let that property sit there unused and neglected. What a fabulous way to remember a life taken so young. Having a place that kids can do something they enjoy and pay tribute to this young man at the same time can only be considered a positive.

R.I.P. Billy. I knew your name and face, but not your story. I wish I could have known you better. Lets take a stand, I hope justice is served. <3

because my Ant Theresa Magnoli told me about this story and I felt so bad, and so angry because the police supposes to help you to live and not to die. At least tell the truth

I grew up on Park Street and also worked at Blue Point Laundry and was happy to see it bulldozed and now it is time for the property to once again bring someone happiness and not a reminder of people toiling at a sweat shop that only made the owners a happy life.......

The account of Billy's sudden passing (("Mom, I'm scared) hit me like a sword in my heart, words which I feel will forever echo in your heart.

What a kind, loving person was he...bringing home those in need with no questions asked by an understanding mom and dad.

Bill and you have been in my personal
prayers as well of those of our parish families at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, East Hampton and Trinity Episcopal Church in Vero Beach, Florida.

The Lord's love and mine, Fr. Alan J. Edmiston

Sounds like a park is better than unused land that the county has ignored

i think it's a great idea and maybe they can add a "handball" court so the kid's can play somewhere other then the store's in which the police harrass them,, it will keep them busy with activities other then drug's,, and i think it's perfect to be in the memory of a precious life taken way to soon.

Because the Sheriff's Department should pay the expense to build it too!! THAT'S WHY!!

The dream of a young man would come to fruition and something useful will have been born out of the tragedy.

Billy lived down the street, was one of my brother's skateboarding buddies when they were kids. He deserves to have his dream come true so great kids like him can enjoy the outdoors in a fun, safe & active environment.
