Billy Hallquist - Onward (1949-2015)
My deepest condolences to the Hallquist family. Bj, Dan and Megan. You are such loving great children! Billy always spoke so proudly of you to me through the years. It is easy to see that his gentle spirit was passed down to you. Thank you for the care you gave to Billy throughout his illness and all the updates you provided me. I admire everything that you did!
We lost a giant of a soul yesterday as I am sure everyone who ever had the good fortune of meeting and knowing Billy is feeling tonight and would agree. His contribution in bringing the Minnesota music community closer and raising awareness for Guitars For Vets is immeasurable. I am missing him dearly already and always will! Thank you also to everyone who gave here at GiveForward and all your loving support and get well wishes. I know they meant the world to Billy!
Thank you, Billy for being such a great friend! I will treasure all the laughs, memories and great times we shared together. Definitely highlights of my life! The way you handled the last 9 months of your life and what you chose to do with your time was beyond dignified.The lessons you taught me on how to live I will carry with me all my remaining days on earth! You didn't need to be Elvis Presley's cousin for me to listen to you! Now the King has to make way for the Ambassador. Let him know if he wants a song to sing that you have plenty of great ones!
