Billy's Buddy  
Billy Smith has lived many years in institutional settings. 
His speech is limited to the extent that he has to use a board to communicate with his human friends. 

However this unique fellow has a special gift: he can communicate with his buddies, the squirrels, who inhabit the hospital parking lots. 

He has a picture album of his squirrel encounters that he will share with everyone who asks. 

If you visit the Chronic Care unit at Stratford General Hospital, you will have no difficulty in finding Billy; as he is the one with the infectious laugh. He also has the most outlandishly colored socks!! 

Please feel free to write to Billy, if you feel you have some common ground; his address is: 


Billy Smith
c/o East, Three South,
