Big Rory Fan *VERY* Sick

Postby kurtiss13 » 20 Sep 2010, 04:00

I have very good friend of mine is very, very ill. He is a tremendous Rory fan (he had asked me about distressing one of his guitars) and I know he spends lots of time online connecting with other fans of Rory's around the world. His name is Bill Major from Warminster, Bucks County, Pennsylvania United States. I dont know if he ever joined this site but I'm trying to contact anyone who might be one of his online friends. Bill and I have seen Rory at the Spectrum in Phila, Stars in Phila (best show ever) and at Alexanders in New Jersey.
If anyone knows of him please let me know.
Prayers would be welcome
Thanx to all

That's really sad.
Don't know Bill, but prayers going out for him. Maybe (if he's up to it) he could join Loose Talk.
Best wishes to him.

So sorry to hear the Billy isn't well. We were pretty friendly awhile back via Rory (trading material etc), but we lost touch. I think Billy changed ISP.
I do remember that he has decided that he was spending too much time online with the Rory stuff and decided to move on.

Give him my best!

i wish all the best to fellow rory fan
I watched as fear took the old men's gaze
Hopes of the young in troubled graves
'I see no day' I heard him say
So grey is the face of every mortal

I never knew Billy, from what I've heard here and on the Loop from other Rory friends, he sounds a great guy and a huge Rory fan ..

My thoughts & Best Wishes go to him and I hope he pulls through somehow

Re: Big Rory Fan *VERY* Sick Update

Milo and I have talked to Billy's long time friend Kurt this week. To
fill you in, the news was the worst. Billy was in a coma, the doctors
said there was significant brain damage and the question was about
quality of life. Basically about as bleak a picture as there could be.

A few minutes ago, I was answering an email from Milo. The email was
about half finished and the phone rang. Barbara said Kurt was on the
phone and my heart sank.

Seems that the family and Billy's lifelong friend, Bill, were at the
hospital more or less planning for life without Billy and suddenly he
woke up!! He wasn't talking, but SEEMED to be hearing what they were
saying. We have NO idea of what this means, but it sure is better news
than expected.

I'll pass the news along as I get it, but in the meantime keep Billy
in your thoughts and prayers and generate whatever good karma you can

Oh, that sounds encouraging. We'll all have to keep praying hard for him. Sometimes miracles do happen, let's hope this is one of them.
