I'm sure Lester and Billy and Tommy are enjoying some " good old POLY boy time". Lester always called him Billy Thomas. He had many good memories of being at that packed family home. Being an only child, he loved the stories and interaction. All of you are in my heart and my prayers. I know the emotions of grief, relief and forgetting it's over I pray for the peace that can only come from God at this time. Love you all. And we both surely loved BILLY THOMAS. God speed old friend.

I have MANY great memories of Billy as we worked together at the Fire Department for many years. The best times we had were when we worked together at Station # 7 ( or Sevens as we would say ). Billy, Harris Cole and myself worked together there and had a lot of fun times. Billy was a super guy and he was crazy about Donah and his girls. I have missed seeing him since retirement. I look forward to reuniting with him some day. I wish love and peace to the family.
