Words cannot express the loss I feel. I have so many wonderful memories of all the great times we’ve shared over the last 70 plus years. We talked many times about how awesome our lives have been. My love to all. Wes.

I can’t really express in words how much of an good impact Billy (and Paula) had on my life, they took me into there’s lives and made me feel as if I was family, something I will never forget.
All those that knew Billy, we’re usually aware of his amazing voice and of his many musical talents, but along with all that, Billy’s personality was very endearing to me and his sense of humor was always in line with mine. So much so, that many times I literally hurt from laughing with him.
Unfortunately I regret, like many have, of not reaching out more and spending more time with him and Paula, especially in these latter years.
I will miss him dearly and I’m sure all his family is dealing with an unimaginable pain right now. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you.

I am so sorry. I remember all the good times we had growing up as kids. I sure will miss hearing him sing songs. We are praying for all of you. Love Vicky and Steve.
