Billy Carr, RIP

Dear Friends:

It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that our dear friend, Billy Carr, passed away on Thursday, August 18, 2011. 

We all know the Carr Brothers to be our greatest supporters and Billy was the glue of the family.  Billy, along with his brothers, Dave and Mike,  served as our 2010 Parade Grand  Marshals. 

Where ever there was Irish music, Billy was there playing his bones.  He was instrustmental in establishing the Irish Open and the Irish Stew Cook-off. 

There are so many wonderful things that we can say about Billy, but the most best think I can say is he was a friend always. 

He has gone to join his mother and his dear friends, Michael Davitt and Doc Kearns.  Heaven is more fun today since Billy is leading the Bones Band up there.
St. Patrick, take care of our dear Friend.

Mary Kearns
Houston's St Patrick's Parade Coordinator
