Funeral for Billy Ding

May 6, 2008 by

The funeral will be next Monday, the 12th, to give all the far-flung relatives a chance to get here.

11:00 a.m., St. Louis Cathedral service.

Immediately following, a second line jazz funeral through a bit of the Quarter, past his bike shop (and get some Chartreuse from Johnny White’s if you’re up to it). The repast will be at BJ’s around 4ish.

    I am Bill’s 2nd cousin ( one of them) and while I was deeply shocked and saddened to hear about his untimely and sudden passing, it is wonderful to know how many friends he has in NO and what a great life he was leading.

    I know his parents, Joe and MaryBet are also so grateful to y’all for all you are doing to celebrate his memory. I know Bill is smiling down gratefully on all of you between card games with his Grandfather…who was quit a character himself !!!

    I live in Tucson and will not be able to attend. My thoughts will be with all of you !!

    I’m beside myself wondering what to make of any of this…Selfishly I want Billly back! To clear up any confusion, the visitation is at St Louis Cathedral from 11am to 1pm, a requiem mass will follow at 1pm. Second line to follow, muscians and any bike worshippers should gather in the square. All are welcome to viewing and mass! I LOVE BILLY MOSS! Julie Kelley
