I was so sad to hear of Billy's death. I worked with Billy at Conroe High School, and Billy was one of the sweetest and kindest person I had ever met. Even though he was sick he was very strong and did not let it bring him down. He loved God and believed strongly in him and it showed. His kindness was God working through him. I know God is watching over him now. Even though I only got to work with him for a little while he touched my heart. I'm so sorry for your loss, please stay strong that is what Billy would of wanted, he deeply loved his family.
