Aw Billy...
I'll always remember those fun, heady times when we all hung out at Sandi and Grants in Melbourne. The Kiwi visitors first stop... summer, beaches, parties.
Great memories we shared together.
Peace and love to you as you go on another journey.
Sincere wishes to your family and friends from our family.

So very saddened to hear the news of Billy's passing. We shared lots of fun times with Billy over the years; always with a cheeky smile and a beer in hand. He'll be missed by many! Sending love and light to all the Okey family at this sad time.
