Gail and family, I am so sorry to hear about Billy passing. I was in his graduating class of 1956. Billy was a kind, wonderful person. It was so good to see him and you at the reunions he was able to make.

So sorry to hear of Billy's passing. We graduated the same class in 1956. What a fine gentleman he was. So glad we got to see him at the class reunion a few years ago. Blessings to you and your family.
